With a count of at least 21 deaths, Tennessee is suffering through devastation as their people experience their homes and lives being destroyed. “Things are moving fast and we are finding people left and right,” Deputy Edwards said in an email, adding that he expected the death toll to rise.” (New York Times) 

 

Pilot Joel Boyers tried his best to help the Tennessee community by rescuing in law citizens. Luckily, most people who have faced devastation have found safety in shelters. Being provided resources, victims cry with the grief of their lost homes. Communities began to clean up the areas and reconstruct the place as soon as possible.
