FALKNER, Miss. - Christmas Day is cleanup day for many who survived this week's deadly storms in the southeastern United States.

Benton County, Mississippi, resident Glenda Hunt says her house sustained heavy structural damage, but it's still standing.

In Linden, Tennessee, Tony Goodwin says his home was knocked off its foundation, but knowing that two of his neighbors died "makes you thankful to be alive with your family."

The storm killed seven people in Mississippi, six in Tennessee and one in Arkansas.
