NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -- Last Tuesday's tornadoes left countless people without homes. In Germantown, in one building alone, hundreds of people are facing a deadline to move their things, because the building is unsafe.
Wes Edwards, has gone from living a comfortable life at the Vista Germantown Apartments, to staying with friends, to figure out his next move. For Edwards and others like him, recovery is a slow process. Now a deadline looms to remove all that he owns from his apartment, within twenty-four hours.
"I had four guitars in there, who knows if they'll be save, the debris is a lot worse that I thought it was, the furniture not looking that good, now that I see it in the daylight," said Edwards.
Edwards considers himself lucky, he was at home, when the tornado struck,his apartment was destroyed in a matter of seconds, he was save by a piece of furniture.
"My Door blew open, and the whole apartment exploded, my book shelf slid across the ground and created a barrier between me and the hallway," said Edwards.
Despite the problems he has faced in the past week, Edwards says, he has not intention of leaving Nashville.
