Microburst in Florence rips mobile home off foundation, tosses it into field

Microburst in Florence rips mobile home off foundation, tosses it into field

This happened Monday evening just north of the Florence State Prison.

Powerful winds lifted the structure right off of its foundation, and tossed it into a field next door.

"It was kind like 'Twister,'" said Tracy Dampier, who lives next door, and whose home was also damaged. "I thought that movie was kind of ridiculous and I was sitting there, it's kind of accurate."

"When you see in the movies, and the windows shatter, it was like that, and the roof is just gone, it's crazy," said Toni Casale. She also lives next door, and the roof of her home was ripped off. She also said her 81-year-old mom was hurt in the chaos.

"Her arm broke because the wind knocked her out of the chair so she has to stay in a facility," Casale said.

Amazingly, the home landed in an upright position. From our chopper view, we could actually see a woman crawling into the rubble to try to retrieve some of her belongings.

A home next door was also hit, but the structure stayed grounded, showing only severe damage to its roof.
