Over the last year, Sharon Moore and her family have patiently worked to get their first home ready for them to live in. Just a week before they were set to finally move in, a tornado ripped through Yazoo City, Miss., picking their home up off its foundation and leaving it torn apart.

Though the loss of their new home is devastating, the Moores explain they are grateful that no one was in the house when it was destroyed.

The Associated Press reports from Yazoo City.
