Tornado shelter housing at NC State's family and graduate student apartments

Dozens of people whose homes were destroyed in the April 16 tornadoes have until Friday to move out of their temporary housing on North Carolina State University's campus.

One-hundred thirty survivors are in the family and graduate student dorm.

Survivors like Marian Chavez and her son moved into the dorm about two weeks ago after her Stony Brook home was destroyed.

"It feels like we're homeless," tornado survivor Gerson Cruz said. "You don't have nothing."

Now, families who have been trying to make the best of life are faced with the challenge of finding another home by Friday.

"Right now, we're in the process of looking for a place to stay," Chavez said. "It's not easy between work and things to do. It's not easy. Right now, I feel like [I'm,] living in a nightmare."

Wake County says it's working with survivors to find them another place to say, possibly another temporary shelter.
