(MOBILE, Ala.) "We're blessed no one was hurt," said Renee Graham who lives at the corner of Dauphin Street and S. Carlen Street.
Graham's neighborhood is packed with clean up crews. The sound of chainsaws fill the air.
But all that matters to her is that her family's safe.
"Half our roof is missing on the Carlen Street side. Almost 90% of the windows are busted out and we have a lot of water damage," said Graham.
She was home with loved ones Christmas night when the tornado ripped through Midtown Mobile.
"We started running downstairs. I was the last one downstairs and I just hit the hallway floor and I could see debris moving in front of our glass door and then it was over," said Graham.
When the sun rose, she got her first look at what the vicious storm left behind.
And when disaster strikes, the Salvation Army isn't far behind.
"We're just trying to service the workers and the actual people in the community that have been hit by this tornado. It's been a devastating day," said Cecil Morris Jr., Salvation Army Disaster Manager.
Their disaster canteen hit the streets around 6am, serving food and hot beverages.
