By on

It was a nightmare no mother wants to see her children go through. But country singer Wynonna Judd had to put her fears behind her as she hid her children in a storage area under the stairs and then had to hang on to their cubby hole for dear life as tornadoes hit their Tennessee home in February.

“Our road looks like a war zone,” said Judd, who headlined a benefit concert on Friday for residents affected by the tornado. “It’s pretty bad.”

The concert, held in Leiper’s Fork, raised more than $17,000 for survivors of the storms, said organizer Lynn Fox.

The tornadoes that swept across Tennessee on February 5-6 killed 32 people and injured more than 190 in the state. More than 50 people were killed across the southern states.

Judd, who lives on an 800-acre farm, said the storm damaged her home, knocked down several trees, and tore off part of a barn roof.
