Kyra Johnson survived a direct hit by a massive tornado. After 3 p.m. on February 23, 2016, Johnson tried to escape an approaching twister.
Panicking, she ran to the True Value Hardware Store in Paincourtville, disappearing off screen. In the video the building is seen being ripped to shreds.
She survived by wedging herself between a wall and a vending machine which protected her.
“I braced myself between the Coke machine and the wall and I just know it saved me. Jesus saved me,” she said
