An elderly woman was thrilled to find her lost dog, during
a TV interview. Barbara Garcia began retelling her horrific
experience of the Oklahoma Tornado that tore through her home.
She began talking about how her dog was sitting on her lap when
suddenly, the Tornado hit with a wind gust of 200mph. She knew what to do,
and started to make her way to the bathroom. As you may or may not know,
the bath tub may offer some protection. You protect yourself with some kind of thick padding like a blanket,
mattress and pillows.
As Barbara relived the events in the CBS Interview something amazing happened.
But as she spoke, a member of the camera crew spotted a dog’s head poking out of the twisted remains of her home.
Mrs Garcia is seen crouching down before exclaiming with joy as she spots her pet.
During a CBS Interview, Barbara’s dog, came out and rejoined his family.

In addition here are some Safety tips for pets during a Tornado:
- The Humane Society Advises to bring pets inside
1. Keep an emergency supply Handy Keep a supply of pet food, water, blankets crate,
litter pads, and an extra leash. We also recommend adding an extra first aid kit,
to this supply. If you can keep an extra copy of your pets shot records with this supply.
2. Make sure your dog has a collar with id tags, and its best to get them microchip ed. Its easier to find them
if they are. If you can have a recent photo of your pet with you always. It helps if they get lost.
3. Practice Getting your Pet to a safe Spot
Pre plan a safe place, you can go to, and on your word
train your dog to go there. Keep in mind any hiding places in the yard,
garage, or around the house your pet likes to go to, for safety, during a rain storm.
Its also good, to have your whole family Practice Tornado Preparedness Drill.
Have an emergency supply of blankets, water, and foods you can take with you for your family.
Including extra first aid kits. Make sure you have the kit ready to go.
Take special care of your pets after the tornado has passed.
Your home may be a very different place after a disaster, which can be very distressing for your pets.
Don’t allow your pets to roam loose.
