A GoFundMe has been set up for the Malbrough family of Church Point, whose home was struck by the tornado there on Sunday night.

We spoke with 12-year-old Jordyn Malbrough on Monday, who was at home with his family when the tornado ripped through the town. He helped save his four younger siblings.

"When we felt it, it was too late because we was running to the back of the house like to the tub but it was too late then we all just fell, then the house started flipping then next thing I know I was in the middle of the house trying to get out then everything was just falling on me," says Malbrough, who said he truly believed he could die in that moment.

You can read more about Jordyn's story here.

The fundraiser, established by a cousin of the Malbrough family, says the family lost all of their belongings in the tornado and are in need of any donation that can be provided.
