The violent storm system that began Thursday in Oklahoma has now blown out to sea after ripping through the south this weekend leaving at least 45 people dead and many more homeless.

In North Carolina alone, the storm claimed at least 21 lives and left a swath of destruction unmatched by any spring storm since the mid-1980s. One of the hardest hit places in North Carolina was Bertie County, where 11 people died, dozens were injured, and at least 70 homes were destroyed. We speak with Zee Lamb, county manager of Bertie County, North Carolina.
