HARRAH — Latrisha Riffel and her two young daughters survived Monday’s tornado because she was low on milk. She said she walked from her mobile home over to her grandpa’s house to borrow a car to get milk. Riffel, 23, had just returned from the store and was still at her grandpa’s house when the tornado hit. Her brother ran in and yelled, "Everybody out! It’s here! I see the tornado,” she said Monday night at a hastily set-up shelter, Harrah Church, 101 S Dobbs Road. She fled to her grandpa’s car with Jazmine, 9 months, and Lillie, 3. The thought was to drive away. "I couldn’t really see much of anything but stuff flying. I was concentrating on my children,” she said. "It sounded like it was on top of us.” She huddled with her children in the back of her grandpa’s car. Her grandpa and mother were in the front seat. They couldn’t leave because a fallen tree blocked the way. Then, a car window in the back blew in. "The glass, it was all over us,” she said. "I’m still shaking. The children were terrified.” She said her grandpa’s house only had some damage. Her nearby mobile home — at 2312 S Dobbs Road — was destroyed. She said five of her eight dogs are missing including some puppies. She said several other homes in her neighborhood "are just gone.” "I’m thanking God that I was not at home,” she said, tears welling inside her eyes. "I know with God’s help things will get better.” Harrah Church’s pastor, Jimmy Holbrook, said others had narrow escapes, too. Holbrook said one church member told of how the tornado sucked off his storm shelter door while he and two neighbors were inside.
