After taking cover in their basement during Friday Night's violent tornado, the Krusemark family, who lives just south of Wayne came out of their basement to discover that the home they love was completely gone.
Homes lifted off of their foundations, a tractor dealership completely destroyed, and an airport with buildings crushed and debris scattered on the runway. That's what Friday's Tornado left in it's path.
Traci Krusemark and her family took cover just in time.
"My husband said it's here and I just had to keep my kids safe." Said Wayne Resident Traci Krusemark.
Minutes later the tornado blew through their home, leaving only the basement and cement foundation remaining.
"We got out and I was looking towards the highway away from the house and I was l wondered why all of the fireman and storm chasers were here because I didn't notice the tree was in half and I turned around and realized I didn't have a house and that was hard for my kids." Said Krusemark.
The tornado didn't stoop there, making a bee-line for the John Deere Dealership east of town.
It blew off the backside of this building and tossed the metal walls like twigs.
"It's worse than I had imagined, where do we start? It didn't hit you until you got home. You're adreline was going but when I got here this morning I saw a lot more things than what we saw last night when we left." Said Mark Koch with Wayne John Deere.
Through all the destruction is a silver lining however, as not a single person lost their life in the storm, something every family is grateful for.
"I just need to remember that my family, my husband, my kids are safe and that's all that matters." Said Krusemark.
As the clean-up continues, a lot of Wayne residents are left picking up the pieces but they won't be alone as many in the Wayne community are willing to help.
