Mrs. Hensley and her husband Donald Hensley had the roof of the home and their garage torn off by the wind. They were home with their grandson when the tornado occurred. "It {the tornado} was quick. It was 30 seconds max. When it was over I was standing there thinking 'I wonder how much of my house is left'," Linda Hensley said. "It's just stuff," Mrs. Hensley said. "As long as my family and pets are OK."
