The Edmond Police Department had Sgt. Jeff Richardson standing by just in case Daniels needed to go to the hospital.

LeBlanc said she kept giving Daniels water and tried to calm her down. LeBlanc had just arrived home with her four children, ages 7, 5, 3 and 1, when the tornado hit, breaking windows, tearing down fences and destroying the landscaping.

"It was very scary,” LeBlanc said. "I just saw my neighbor’s home demolished.”

Fortunately, Daniels said, she didn’t need the sergeant’s help delivering her baby Tuesday night.

"It made me feel better that if I needed to get out, he was there,” she said. "It was very, very kind.”
