Woman: God, best friend saved her from tornado

Cape Breton Post - - WORLD -

NEW OR­LEANS — A woman who lives in eastern New Or­leans cred­its God and her best friend for her sur­vival as a tornado struck her house. Roc­queisha Wil­liams says she was sit­ting on her bed and it wasn’t even rain­ing out­side when the friend called her Tues­day, warn­ing that a tornado was in her neigh­bour­hood. While haul­ing a mat­tress into the bath­room to hun­ker down, she looked out her front win­dow at a world gone grey, shot through with turquoise light­ning. When the storm passed, she found all her bed­rooms dam­aged and her bed cov­ered with glass. She ran to a nearby school and found it dam­aged, but her two sons there were safe. Her other two chil­dren also were safe at other schools.
