ADAIRSVILLE, Ga. -

The tornado that ripped through Adairsville was terrifying for many.  For one woman, Wednesday started like any other day in her life-- before it turned upside.

Joyce Morgan was one of 10 people who stayed at the Manning Mill Youth Facility, a shelter set up by the American Red Cross.  Morgan tells FOX 5 she was making a pot of coffee when she heard a loud noise.

"There is a roar that you wouldn't believe, and lightning and all the sudden windows went to popping out. I went screaming for my son, Jamie," said Morgan.

Her son was already under a pile of rubble after trees destroyed their home.

"I thought it killed him. When the tree hit, it was just like the whole side just opened up in his room and it was trying to pull me out," Morgan said.

Jamie Morgan said he had to pull the debris out of his way, and crawled out through the roof. He said he was more concerned about his mother.  When Joyce Morgan found out her son was okay, she was relieved. Both are concerned about what is next.

"It's left us worried, where are we going? Where are we going to have shelter? Where are we going to have a house at? It's left us with nothing," said Morgan.

Morgan and her son lived in the same mobile home park where 51-year-old Anthony Raines was killed.
