People in Central Arkansas react after their house is destroyed by the tornado



Little Rock, Arkansas – People are now trying to clean up the mess left behind in Little Rock. There is still damage being found and personal items are being found all over the city.

“We definitely walked away with nothing,” said resident whose home was leveled, Erika Jackson.

Jackson walked down the steps of the house that used to belong to her family.

“Right here you come in through the steps, it was a two-story house and this right here would be my daughters room,” said Jackson.

Erika Jackson and her family talk about the moment they came back to their once beautiful but now gone home.

“I was just in disbelief like what happened, the tornado like it was really bad,” said niece, Lamonica Jackson.

Erica Jackson said that she went to pick up the daughter of a family member from school that day.

“By the grace of God they didn’t let us get them, so by the time we came home, everybody was running we didn’t know what was going on, we didn’t know what happened, we were running up the hill up here and we didn’t see our house anymore,” stated Jackson.

“I was walking from down the hill and I didn’t see the house like I do every day because usually I walk and I see the back porch and I didn’t see it,” said son, Jeremiah Jackson.

Insulation is everywhere, clothes are in trees, and all of their things are just thrown around.

Even so, they keep their spirits up because their friends and neighbors have just come together to help.

“It’s definitely insane but I know, most people expect me to be sad and mad and upset, but God it’s amazing. I can replace everything you see out here, but I couldn’t replace my kids. I can’t replace my husband, they didn’t have to bury me, you know that’s a lot,” Erika Jackson said.

They said that with everyone’s help, they were able to find their wedding bands, old photos, and things they loved from high school.

Erika Jackson said that they couldn’t be more grateful to everyone who helped them find the things they cared about the most.
