The storm knocked over the church's steeple and made a hole in the roof. Church officials say they will rebuild the steeple, which will likely cost in the millions. 

"I was just shocked," Father Matt Fasnacht said. "It was sad. I felt sad. We're grieving right now, it's a hard thing to have happen but nobody got hurt and God is still with us and we'll be OK. We'll rebuild."
