Family survives tornado inside the grandmother's prayer closet

Actions

WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — A volunteer aiding with tornado relief in Alabama was shocked to find a home that was entirely demolished ... except for one part.

"It's the grandmother's prayer closet, and the whole family survived," Jason Smith posted on Facebook alongside photos.

Smith told local media that he went to the areas affected by the storm in Lee County, Alabama, with the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team. In the now-viral photos he posted, all you can see of the house are two slabs of wall that Smith said was the prayer closet. The whole family did survive the tornado that took the lives of more than 20 others in the area.
