Transcript for Washington, Ill., Survivors: 'Our Dream Home Is Gone'
We're joined by one of the families picking up the pieces this morning. Chris and mandy lancaster. Chris you have the big bandage over your eye. How are you feeling? I'm a little sore. A little beat up. Still in shock of all that's happened. I really don't know where to go from here. We saw that incredible video you were shooting as the tornado was coming in. What were you feeling? I was feeling devastating watching it tear up the neighborhood as it came to me. I thought it was going to curve and at the last second, it didn't. I took off running, trying to get in. And -- watched my whole house just vanish around me. As it was flying by me, as I'm trying to get to the steps. I got debris hitting me. The refrigerator knocked me into the other room. I jumped to the stairs. I don't know how I did it. I got to the stairs and fell down them. They pulled me to safety in the back room of the basement. This was your dream home, wasn't it? We worked so hard through our life to get and to get our kids into a better neighborhood, town, school district. We have only lived here two years. Our dream home is gone. Mandy, what was it like in the basement with your babies as well? Scary. I didn't know what was going on. I couldn't hear or see anything. We lost all power and things. It was just -- it was scary. Are you going to rebuild? We're going to try to rebuild. I'll try to get the same spot, same property. Rebuild, carry on with our lives. I know it's cold out there. We'll let you get back inside. Thanks for joining us this morning. Thank you for having us. Thank you to everybody sporting us, the neighborhood, the town. We need it. We need all the help we can get in this town. They have poured everything into that house. They wanted to move to the school district for their kids to have a good education. They said it's like ground zero right now. Our heart goes out to them.
