Kelley Crook was at home with her husband and four children when the tornado smashed into their neighborhood.
Crook, a nurse who works third shift, was sleeping when her youngest child awakened her up about 4 p.m.
“My husband looked out and yelled for us to go to the basement,
“The wind was whistling and I wasn’t sure what was going on,” she said.
The family crowded into a closet under a set of stairs.
“It was undescribably loud,” she said. “It was scary not knowing what was going on.”
The Crook’s home received only minor damage.
“We’re blessed,” she said simply.
