DEXTER, MI (WXYZ) - Four-year-old Avery Lawrence stretched out her little arms to show 7 Action News how her mom covered her and her baby sister as a tornado ripped through their neighborhood.
The three took shelter inside a small closet in the basement of their Dexter home Thursday as at least one tornado tore through around 6 p.m.
"She was panicking," said Avery as she talked about how her mom worried about their safety as she rushed them down the stairs and into the basement.
The Lawrence's house sustained damage to the roof and siding, but unlike some of their neighbors, they were still able to spend the night at home.
