Dave Blunt of Prices Corner says high winds rocked his shed on its foundation, and he scrambled to get to William Penn High School, one of seven shelters in the state.

"Everybody got cots, women, children, or elderly first. I didn't sleep too well, I don't think a lot of people really did. There was just a lot of anxiety going on from the storm outside, and people not knowing what's going on. A lot of the people were glued to the TVs," he said.

He plans to stay another night, before he has to go find out what happened to his home.

"It keeps you out of the weather. I don't want to go running around through a house if it's got a bunch of sticks in it, you know. I don't want any of that. I'm just going to wait it out, and try not to think about it too much," he said.
