Clay and Seavia Dixon pick through what is left of their tornado-damaged home on Wednesday, February 6, 2008, in Atkins, Arkansas. Their new truck was blown about 150 yards (140 meters) away from their house, of which only a concrete slab remained intact, the Associated Press reported.

Holding baby photos of her son, now serving in Iraq, she told the AP, "You know, it's just material things. We can replace them. We were just lucky to survive."
