Renick Still Digging Out from Rubble
However, one person isn't letting anyone clean up his mess. Charles Davis doesn't trust volunteers to clean up his land, so it sits and waits. One of his neighbors on Route NN said the sight is a painful reminder of what happened one month ago.
Helen Prange's family is trying to put their lives back together but, despite those efforts, she's still haunted by the storm.
"When your home's all tore up, and everything is, everything around you is all tore up," she explained, "and then I'm sick on top of it."
People who drive past the broken trees and twisted metal on Davis' land agreed with Prange.
"It brings into your mind every time you go by, that it's not that far away, added Leroy Franklin, "when the accident actually happened or the tornado came through."
Davis said he will let people pick up debris, if they're people he trusts. Prange said she can't stand to look at the mess.
His wife said the 89-year-old Davis is used to doing things himself, but he's had a hard time dealing with the damage. His niece, who is also the mayor's wife, is trying to convince Davis to let volunteers help. The mayor said he can't force Davis to clean up the mess, unless the county passes a nuisance law.
