SANFORD, N.C. —
Deadly tornadoes ripped through North Carolina, demolishing homes and businesses one year ago Monday.
On Sunday, the community of Sanford gathered to remember the frightening day and celebrate their efforts to rebuild.
Church member Annie Akers said she watched the community rebuild the Lowe’s store that had its roof ripped off and other damaged areas.
“We have watched the city of Sanford rebuild, restaurants, Lowe’s. We’ve went into the neighborhoods. Some houses have rebuilt, some have not. So, we’ve seen it all,” she said.
Churches and other groups in the Triangle area said they will continue to make repairs and help the community heal.
