EF-1 Tornado Destroys Perry Co. Home
From the West Alabama Newsroom–
A Perry County couple is on the long road to recovery — after storms destroy their home Tuesday afternoon.
Nathaniel and Sylvia Hester — are cleaning up their property — and trying salvage whatever they can. But their house is a total loss.
“We were in the living room sitting on the couch,” said Sylvia Hester.
“The BOLOs went off. And then we heard a crackling noises while trees was coming down.”
“And then it sound like a train was coming up through here. About two or three of them was coming,” said Nathaniel Hester.
“Then all of a sudden the trailer come up, got up off the ground and we was floating, like we was on water. And then all of a sudden it just dropped us back down.”
They say it happened in slow motion — and in a split second — at the same time.
“I mean it was just that quick.”
The couple says the experience — has only strengthened their faith in God.
“When it hit I just knew my husband and I wouldn’t be here,” said Sylvia.
“But my husband told me, he said baby, we gon’ be alright.”
“God got us,” said Nathaniel.
“God got us, we ain’t worried. We didn’t even get a scratch on us,”
The couple says their home — was insured.
