(WMC) - Mayflower residents in Faulkner County, Arkansas are dealing with unbelievable devastation after a deadly tornado blew through on Sunday night.

The tornado left homes smashed beyond recognition, foundations with nothing on them, and trees snapped in half. People in the area, which is just outside Little Rock, say it looks like a bomb went off. To see pictures of the damage, click here.

Cheryl Gubanski was in a trailer that is now smashed and upside down. She ran to her parents' house and they got in the hallway.

"It was a freight train, and the house was rumbling," she said describing the tornado.

They all survived uninjured, but they are the lucky ones.

Fifteen victims were killed in the tornado. The names were released by Faulkner County spokesman David Hogue on Monday.

It will take a long time before people in the county will be able to put their lives back together. Some are wondering where they will even start.
