Storm cleanup is underway in Lincoln County after two people were killed when an EF-3 tornado swept through the area on Monday night.
Authorities identified the victims as John Prince, 60, and his wife Karen Prince, 44. They lived in a mobile home on Tipton Road.
Sheriff Murray Blackwelder said in a news conference on Tuesday that seven people had minor injuries.
Blackwelder said 25 structures were destroyed and several others were damaged.
South Lincoln Elementary suffered severe damage during the storms. The front of the school was torn off, about three-quarters of the building's roof was ripped off and a school bus was tossed into the building, which was empty at the time of the storms.
Several homes on Price Lane and Howell Hill Road were also destroyed.
Jewel Kooce, 82, says she had six of her family members with her underneath the dining room table in the center of their home when the storms hit.
"Glass was flying everywhere; it was terrible. So sad, but I know I had the Lord with me. If the Lord hadn't been with me, I wouldn't be here today, I know that," Kooce said.
