Linda Jefferson rode out the tornado in her basement.

“I heard the sirens and went down right way,” she said.

From her basement window, Jefferson saw the tornado rip the next door neighbor’s garage door off.

“It was like it was just a toy,” she said.

Jefferson’s home suffered minor damage. She lost a small tree in her front yard and shingles from her roof.
