PEARL RIVER COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Rain continued to pour down Sunday and one Pearl River County family that spent the day cleaning up what Mother Nature destroyed on Saturday.

"We were in the RV trailer and we saw some weird clouds come up from the south," Travis Ladner recalled.

It hasn't been confirmed by the National Weather Service, but those "weird clouds" may have been a tornado.

"It sounded kind of like some wolf, wind and rain. It lasted for about 10 minutes and that's all we know," Lander said.

Ladner said it was the longest 10 minutes of his life. He and his wife have been staying in the trailer while their home is being built. Now they, along with the help of family and friends, are making an effort to salvage what they can. 

"I thank God and bless all these people for being here and making the best from this situation," Ladner said.

Glorine Wilson, Ladner's mom, is also very thankful for the help.

"It's very sad. It's very sad," she said.

She lives up the street from her son and daughter-in-law, but had no damage at her home. So she was in shock when she saw the damage done on her son's property.

"When I got down here, I just couldn't believe it. I just couldn't comprehend it. It was just a total shock to me," Wilson said.

The trailer is destroyed, and now Ladner and his wife are being forced to stay in their unfinished 30x30 home, with little room. But they're hopeful that more help will come, and they'll be able to rebuild sooner, rather than later.

"I'm praying to the good Lord that if we can get another big shed to store everything and maybe get something that we can stay in until we get the big house completed," Ladner said.

Both Ladner and his wife have multiple physical disabilities. If you can help them in any way, you're asked to contact Travis' sister, Priscilla Hagwood, at (228) 669-6285.
