Waverly, Va. - There's still a lot to clean up after tornados ripped through Waverly.

Folks were asked to stay inside again so Dominion Power crews and others could get down the narrow streets of this small town.

A local church was devastated in this storm and members say they will rebuild.

It’s heartbreaking for members of Empowerment Temple Ministries.

Wednesday night was supposed to be bible study inside the church.

You can find parts of the ceiling missing and lots of debris scattered outside.

It's just across the street from where three people lost their lives at a mobile home.

The governor toured the area on Thursday morning.

There's lots of damage left behind -- to homes, buildings, and even hearts.

Many in the small town are mourning the loss of three lives, but they are promising to rebuild.

A group of contractors will be out in the area tomorrow volunteering to help clean up and rebuild Waverly.
