Tornado survivor says church collapsed around him

Posted: Updated:

YAZOO CITY, MS (WLBT) - A Yazoo City man was inside the Hillcrest Baptist Saturday morning when it was destroyed by a Tornado.

Dale Thrasher says his wife called him at the church around 11:30 to tell him that a tornado was at Little Yazoo.

Thrasher looked outside and saw the rain and the funnel cloud. The only place he had to go was back inside the church.

He ran into the sanctuary and dived underneath the communion table as the church came down around him.

Thrasher was not hurt, but injuries and property damage are reported in the Yazoo City area.
