Tornado Repair Work, North Carolina
A series of violent tornadoes ripped through Raleigh and across the heart of North Carolina on April 9, 2011. The storms leveled or damaged hundreds of homes, demolished a trailer park, plucked trees out of the earth and left more than 84,000 people without power. After the tornado, Ben Kelley decided to help out at a trailer park, which had approximately 100 trailers in it before the storm hit. He drove to North Carolina to volunteer where he and his team was assigned to repair trailers in a mobile home park.
