Rank: F0

I am a survivor of that tornado. The storm tore the roof off of most of my home, including the living room where I and my family were located. I was four years and 11 months old at the time. My mother suffered some broken bones in one of her feet. Nobody else in my family sustained any injuries aside from friction burns from being rubbed into the carpet. Our home suffered F2 level damage, while neighboring homes suffered F3 damage. There were no fatalities in our neighborhood, but a number of people were hurt. The dead included five members of a family of six. The only survivor was a four year old boy.

We had no warning. As far as I know, there was no warning at all. As this was early on a Saturday morning, many people were either in bed or, like us, still in their bed clothes. As far as I know, there are no photographs of the tornado. I do have photos of the aftermath.
