Tom was fourteen when the Tornado threatened. His father tossed him into the car as he went to call Maya to warn her about the tornado.
His mother and sister were already inside the car. His father drove like a mad man. The main road was blocked so his father drove over pastures, knocking down fences, going as fast as he could, shouting;
“Do you see it?”
Tom, in the backseat said, “It seems to be going dead North…”
As his father was driving East, it might would miss them.
His father drove to the old tunnel and shoved in. It was jammed with cars, nothing moving.
And that is where they stayed until the all clear.
