Roy Gordon recounted how the family survived. Their family home was located on top of a hill and they saw the funnel cloud approaching from the southwest. Roy and both of his parents ran west down the hill and laid flat in the creek. The tornado howled by; totally destroying their home and farm buildings. Following the tornadoes it snowed, adding more misery for the survivors.
