A powerful storm system spawned about two dozen tornadoes along the Gulf Coast this week, damaging hundreds of homes in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Florida and killing three people and injuring dozens.
One such community hit by the storm was the small town of LaPlace, La., where residents were cleaning up Wednesday after a possible tornado smashed into their town a day earlier, ripping up trees and damaging nearly 200 homes.
Carl Terry lives in the Indigo Estates subdivision, where dozens of homes were destroyed by the high winds. His home was badly damaged by the storm, but he was grateful to make it through with his family still intact.
“I’m kind of numb right now. I’m trying to put everything together. I’m safe. My wife is safe. Our kids are safe. That’s the most important thing. Let’s just get it all back together, and everything will be alright,” Terry told News with a Twist reporter Kenny Lopez of WGNO-TV.
The roof of Terry’s house was blown off, and the interior was messed up by the storm, but in the midst of all that destruction was another bright spot for Terry.
Still in his garage sitting safe and sound was his red C6 Corvette!
