David Ball of O' Kean, AR, said that he got a good look at the twister as it passed through Delaplaine.
"It took us a little bit to walk in and see what all it had done, but it did quite a bit of damage," said Meredith.
She said that she and her family left their home in the nick of time.
After the storm passed, Meredith and her family went back to their home to assess the damage.
"Thirty minutes after it happened, people were calling… wondering what they could do and they started coming in and helping us," she said.
Petrified that her furniture would be destroyed form rain, Meredith and people in the community moved several loads of furniture to storage.
