It will be a long weekend for police and National Guard Troops who are watching over the communities pounded by Friday's deadly storms.
They're protecting ravaged Kentucky towns like East Bernstadt in Northern Laurel County.
Neighbors helped one another sort through the rubble they once called home.
David Hamilton is among many trying to understand what happened here.
He says, "It's total shambles, is what it is. A freak of nature."
Red ribbons now show the spots in trees where victims were found near Little Arthur Ridge Road.
Some didn't survive.
The vicious storms took 5 lives from the tight-knit community.
And right now, trees and debris are blocking a lot of roads in East Bernstadt.
While police are helping families get to their homes, county workers say it could take several weeks to clear the streets.
