A deadly F-4 tornado ripped through the town of Vilonia, Arkansas on Sunday, which is just north of Little Rock. And at least 150 homes were destroyed. But here's SOME good news from it.
37-year-old Wade Lentz is the pastor of a Baptist church in Vilonia. And his family's house was completely demolished by the tornado. But they were more worried about their dog Oreo, who'd disappeared during the storm.
And the tornado was so powerful, they obviously weren't holding out much hope. But when they went back two days later . . . Oreo popped out from under the rubble wagging his tail. And his only injury was a small SCRATCH on one of his legs.
Wade and his family think Oreo must have been sucked up by the tornado, then landed safely somewhere . . . unlike Wade's truck, which they found upside down about 150 yards away from where it was parked.
And apparently Oreo found his way back to the house, even though it was demolished. Which wouldn't be the first time. Because Wade and his family recently put him in a kennel while they went on vacation. But he broke out . . . and eventually showed up back home. (NBC News)
