NBC 10's Shernay Williams spoke with a man who says the storms ripped off the roof of his house.
"It got quiet and I told my wife, something is going to happen," says Chuck Calvert.
It's 9:30 p.m. Tuesday night when Calvert and his wife Lou-Ann are in the living room of their home in Goodwill, West Carroll Parish.
Then, storm conditions take a nosedive. Calvert says he was watching news coverage of the storm when tornado warnings popped up, just 10 miles from his house.
He and his wife took cover in the bathroom.
"I grabbed my door to shut it and put my shoulder against it," he said. And then he says what feels like a tornado whips through.
"In about ten seconds, it was gone," he said.
In ten seconds, 39 years worth of memories are in shambles. "I happen to look up-- I had a light shining--and I said we don't have a roof on our house,"he said.
Sheriff Jerry Philley says Calvert's home was hit the hardest in the parish.
But one thing is for certain: the Calvert's feel fortunate. "If we hadn't been watching TV, we would've been blown away," he said.
His advice? If you hear a tornado warning, don't wait to take cover.
