PIKEVILLE, Ky.(WYMT) - A Pike County woman spent most of Monday trying to contact her brother in Oklahoma after the deadly tornado hit the town of Moore.

Teresa Amesse's brother Robert lives with his wife and son in El Reno, Oklahoma, about 45 minutes away from Moore.

She says when she heard about the tornado she tried calling him but could not get through.

She says all the phone lines were tied up.

She even tried finding information online.

"Just the feeling of not knowing. It's something you must really can't explain. I mean the first thing that hit my mind was well you know when the phone rings it's going to be authorities. They're going to say we found your brother he's in the rubbish," said Amesse.

Her brother did call her Monday night.

None of them were hurt by the tornado.
