SANFORD, N.C. —
Roof Peeled Off Sanford Lowe's Store With Customers Inside
WATCH: First Person: Alert Staff Kept NC Shoppers Safe
A press release from the White House said Obama expressed his gratitude Monday to Lowe's store manager Michael Hollowell for his swift action Saturday that likely saved lives.
The release did not give any additional details on what Obama and the store manager discussed.
Hollowell has deflected praise for his actions, saying he was simply following his company's safety plans.
The tornado that ripped apart the Lowe's was one of dozens that moved across North Carolina on Saturday, killing 21 people.
