The married couple got off only with bruises, and a slight fright. Unfortunately, their house was completely destroyed.

The man claims that the tornado caught them off guard. On TV, they were warned of a possible tornado, but the couple did not expect to be part of the sad events. Unfortunately, the Eyolfsons house collapsed when the couple was inside. Because of the formed debris, they could not get to each other.

"I do not remember the exact details of the incident." Said Janet. "I'm just glad that it's over and we're safe."

At this point, the couple contacted the insurance company to get compensation for the damage and move closer to their relatives.
