A tornado was on its way to Sanford, a town about 40 miles southwest of Raleigh, North Carolina. Managers spotted it and moved 100 shoppers and employees to a safe area in the back of the store. The store was destroyed but no one was hurt. The assistant manager, Bobby Gibson and two shoppers, Gary and Kathy Hendricks speak to American Morning.

    Did they get to celebrate the civil war 150th year? It was being celebrated through out the south – Hope they didn't miss out because of the tornado.
