LOUISVILLE, Ky. — There were five confirmed tornados in Kentucky on Wednesday. Denise Allen reunited with her daughter, Mia Shakur, after the tornado badly dammaged their apartment at the Oak's at St. Andrews community.
Allen came home from work and was sitting in her living room when the storm hit.
She called her daughter, worried for her safety.
"She was just like, there's a torndao. It just hit. Where are you? Be careful," Shakur said.
Hours later, the family reunited at the Oaks at St. Andrews apartment community.
"That could have been my last day talking to my mom. That could have been the last time I'd see my brother and sisters," Shakur said.
The family is safe and staying at Allen's sister's.
"From here, I don't know where we go, but as neighbors, we'll figure it out," Allen said.
Allen and her family cannot re-enter their home.
