Dorothy Wilborn lost her home to Sunday’s storm but managed to escape with only minor cuts from broken glass.
She was home with family members when the storm hit. As Wilborn, her son and daughter-in-law huddled in the hallway, the EF-4 tornado stripped away the roof from her brick house leaving the interior exposed to the rain and cold.
She said her family is there and she will be ok with them. Wilborn’s family was able to salvage some pieces of her furniture and other belongings.
“You have got to live it, so that you know how strong and dangerous it is,” Wilborn said about surviving the storm.
“We just prayed,” Wilborn said.
