According to NBC25, the 86-year-old grandmother of Durand was at home in her Lay-Z-Boy when the tornado tore through her home. It pulled the house off it's the foundation, destroyed a shed, ripped the roof off but luckily she survived.
Her family says it's a miracle that she was able to survive something like this. Not only survive but she didn't get a scratch. According to her son, "she's a tough old bird."
The first thing she wanted after the whole ordeal...was a cigarette.
It's believed the home can be rebuilt on the foundation.
