During the tornado, Keyarta Ryan lost the family home her grandfather built 80 years ago. Now, she's trying to figure out where to go from here.

BERTIE COUNTY, N.C. — Keyarta Ryan’s home was torn apart as Tropical Storm Isaias moved through North Carolina.

The storm brought in tornadoes. One of them ripped right through her home in Bertie County.

“Sounded like it was just falling on top of us... sounded just like a freight train,” said Ryan.

Aerial footage from above showed the mobile home park where she lives demolished. Homes were unrecognizable.
