A Vidrine family is lucky to be alive, after a tree fell on their house, trapping them inside. Thursday night's severe storms are to blame for the chaos. According to the National Weather Service, an EF1 tornado with ninety mile an hour winds, left over two miles of damage behind in the Vidrine area.

That includes a tree that fell on the Johnson's home, destroying everything inside.  According to Stephanie Johnson she grabbed her two girls and puppies and went into hallway. Johnson says she had to hold her foot against the door because the wind was sucking everything up. The Johnson's home was destroyed and they lost everything they owned.

A donation account for Stephanie, her two daughters who are twelve and thirteen years old and her fifteen year old son has been setup at Jeff Davis bank. Checks can be made payable to Tracy Ann Campney benefits for Stephanie Johnson, account number 55001587.
