CARNEY, Oklahoma -

The cleanup in Carney continues as homeowners there clear out their lots and make way for new houses. The effort is on-going and some of the first houses being rebuilt from the foundation are starting to go up.

Several homes were destroyed, but luckily nobody was killed in the twister.

More than two months later, families have seen progress as they rebuild their homes from the ground up.

For Nancy Townsend and her family, seeing the house outlined on their plot of land is exciting.

"I think we're pretty fortunate that it's happening fast and we should be home before Christmas," Townsend explained.

Townsend grew up in Carney. So did her husband. So rebuilding here just made sense.

Their house may have been lost but it can be rebuilt. Townsend said they would not want to live anywhere else. She has been overwhelmed but not surprised by the generosity shown by friends and complete strangers.

For example, Tuesday morning, a church in Choctaw dropped off new school supplies for every student in the district. That along was a big help for a mom of three.

"I just can't believe how generous people are and people have given so much and not just like stuff, just help and yeah people have been very generous to help us out," Townsend said.
