Crawford path of destruction

Posted: Updated:
CRAWFORD, Ala. -

Neighbors in the Johnson's Place subdivision sifted through what was left of their homes after a presumed tornado cut a destructive path through their community early Tuesday.

12-year-old Edward Payne said it was the most terrifying thing he had ever experienced.

"I was trembling," said Payne. "That's all I can say about it. Just one word -- trembling. So scared, I've never been in a tornado in my life before."

The storm brought neighbors together. Strangers from other communities brought food, water and other essential items for the victims. Through it all, Payne says it was their faith that kept him secure.

"I was praying in the bathroom thinking, asking Jesus for protection over our house and that was the big thing that got us through it."said Payne.

In the days to come, the National Weather Service will visit storm ravaged communities to determine how strong tornadoes were in those communities.
