NewsChannel3 was the only station there to see crews with flashlights in hand taking action to help.
Through the darkness you could see a clear path where trees were snapped off and power lines brought down. Pasquotank County emergency operations confirm one person was hurt and transported to Sentara Norfolk.
Christy Berent lives a few doors down from the house that was destroyed. She said she was watching the forecast on NewsChannel 3 when the power went out and the storm was right in her backyard.
“The house just started shaking and it sounded like a train was going through the backyard and he told me come running and I grabbed my little yorkie and went running in through the hallway and back in the closet," Christy Berent told NewsChannel 3.
She said it was about 5 minutes later when it suddenly got silent. Berent told NewsChannel 3 all that was damaged was her families fence she says it`s nothing compared to devastation just down the road.
”We didn`t lose a house we didn`t lose each other thank you god we are still alive,” Berent said.
