TANGIPAHOA PARISH - An early-morning tornado pushed a Tangipahoa Parish house off its foundation while four people were inside, according to emergency officials.

The National Weather Service confirmed than an EF-1 tornado caused damage to a home on the border between Tangipahoa and St. Helena parishes early Wednesday morning.

Stephanie Blofeld was one of the people inside the home when the storm moved through.

"I was screaming, of course," she told reporters, "I couldn't hear anything."

No one was injured in the storm, which also did roof and windo damage to three homes and a school in Terrebonne Parish.
