Woman films deadly Little Rock, Arkansas EF-3 tornado and lived to tell the tale 


From the entrance of a dentist’s office on Cantrell Road, Little Rock, Arkansas this past Friday, Kimberly Shaw watched a tornado in the distance and started to film it on her phone. 

Whilst capturing what was happening, she quickly called her husband to come inside. He was waiting for her in the parking lot of the dentist’s office, according to KARK 4 News (KARK).

“The wind started opening the door,” Shaw told KARK. “For some reason, in my mind, I was like if it opens the door we are going to be sucked out.”

“The windows behind us blew out and when they did it went ahead and sucked me out. And so I was just holding on to whatever I was holding onto and my husband grabbed a hold of me and he pulled me back inside,” Shaw said. 

Shaw told KARK that she remembers debris flying around her and her husband holding on to her. “I would have been sucked out the door and taken by the tornado, he saved my life.” 

The video, which you can watch below, is an important reminder of what not to do during a tornado. 

The above video has been shared on Facebook 56,000 times and 11,000 people have commented on Shaw’s post. 

“It is not worth the hype [it’s] dangerous. The only thing you need to do during a tornado is [to] get somewhere safe,” Shaw stated.
