Last weekend’s tornado outbreak was one of the worst outbreaks for the month April. 671 tornadoes have been recorded from April 1st to April 18th, crushing the average number of tornadoes occurring in April over the past 10 years. The wrath of the storm left 45 people dead and easily left damages adding up to millions of dollars. North Carolina was one of the states that were hit the hardest, with over 14,200 insurance claims according to Nationwide. To help aid the victims of the tornado outbreak, Nationwide drove a motor coach to Standford, NC and set up shop in a parking lot. Many people will not get over to what happened to their home, and even after they received their clams, the psychological damage will last forever.
