Woman Flies Through Tornado in Bathtub, Lands in Woods Unharmed

This is nuts and not far from a miracle. I’ve always heard that the bath tub is the best place to hide if a twister is heading your way. This story here is proof!


Story by Jason Samenow

A woman inside took shelter in a bathtub and the tornado lifted the tub out of the home and deposited it in the woods with the woman still in the tub but the woman was not injured.

Jason Hansford, a senior meteorologist who conducted the storm survey, said he spoke to the woman after the incident.

“She heard the tornado warning come out and she took cover in the tub in her bathroom,” he said. “The only thing she remembers is that the tornado came in from the southwest across her home. At that point the whole backside of her house was sheared off. Her bath tub was ripped out of her bathroom and she ended up still in her tub in some woods near her home.”
