One remains in ICU after tornado hits neighborhood
TICKFAW - A tornado was the last thing residents on John McDonald road expected to wake up to, early Sunday morning.
One woman is in the Intensive Care Unit at North Oaks Hospital and another person suffered minor injuries.
"There's no way to escape it," said Billy McDonald, who lives on the street where the twister touched down.
According to authorities, the tornado sustained winds of more than 100-mph.
McDonald said the land where it hit is family owned property.
It's McDonald's aunt who's in ICU and whose trailer was flipped completely upside down.
His aunt suffered a broken leg and a fractured nose. According to McDonald, she went into surgery just hours after the tornado destroyed her home, but he said he's just grateful she made it out alive.
" She's 78 years old....so what you see here is what they have," said McDonald.
McDonald said the family appreciates any assistance they can get.
If you would like to donate household items to the McDonald family, you can contact them at (985) 215-0577.
