Jackie Nelson was listening to warnings for Crittenden residents to take cover when the TV abruptly shut off.
Her wind chimes started making furious music.
Trees outside frantically moved from side to side as the sky grew black.
The tornado had arrived.
Jackie, who was in her Barley Circle apartment with her two children, 8-year-old Zeke and 5-year-old Cloe, had taken a queen-size mattress off the bed and put it in the hallway between the two bedrooms.
They huddled under the mattress to take cover from the storm.
