EDWARD, BEAUFORT COUNTY - One woman receives the keys to her new home after Hurricane Irene destroyed her house three years ago.
Diane Clark says the roof of her mobile home was completely blown off as Hurricane Irene passed through Eastern Carolina causing millions of dollars in damages.
Since then, she has been without a home of her own as members of the United Methodist Disaster Response team and volunteers from various other organizations contribute money and time to help build her a brand new house.
Clark says, "Wow this is for real and the volunteers I tip my hat off to them because they have done a good job."
Cliff Harvell, the director of the United Methodist Disaster Response says they look to help people who are underinsured or with no insurance at all.
So far, the group has rebuilt nearly 650 homes, but they say they still have at least 20 to 30 more homes throughout the area that still need recovery.
