JONESBORO -- The yards are littered with the remains of homes hit Saturday night by tornadoes in White County. The people victimized by tornadoes, spun off by hurricane Rita, are thankful to be alive after their homes were ripped apart. Debra Betts was alone in a church when the tornado hit, "I heard a roar and then the roar got louder and I thought, 'Oh my, maybe I should go into the bathroom'.'' Huge chunks are missing from the roof of the church, and the steeple that should be on top of the building now lays on the grass out front.
