PAINCOURTVILLE, Louisiana-- A woman was nearly swept away in a tornado in Louisiana last week, but she was able to brace herself between a Coke machine and the wall.
Kyra Johnson tells WGNO that she found shelter by the machine at a hardware store. She says God saved her.
The owner of the hardware store, David Sagona, posted some incredible videos on his Facebook page. In one video, you see Johnson frantically trying to open the doors. Then, you see the building's roof and walls go flying.
A few days after surviving the storm, Johnson posted on Facebook:
"This is what happened to me on Feb. 23, 2016. God Please Save Me and HE DID!! He heard my cry in all that wind. I shouted for him the whole time it was over us. I dont even remember being scared. I didnt have time. It was survival mode.That coke machine fell. I had nothing to block me. He told me to hold on to the door and i did as i watched my life flash before my eyes! They said the winds were 134 mph and the tornado was a EF3. Sounds really bad but God had me in a protective bubble! Just watch, I have more of this true life story to tell. There is a bigger story behind this one. Thank You God for not turning your back on me. HE IS REAL! Share my story! That's why I'm here! He is REAL! He hears you! Every situation is different tho!"
