Woman: God, best friend saved her from tornado
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.
