Storm injures one person in Troy, Mo.

TROY, Mo. – A strong line of winds ripped part of the roof off of a home in Troy Thursday at around 5:30 p.m.

"Shock probably hasn't set in yet, give me an hour," laughed Al Horn.

His humor is intact, but his house sure isn't.

"It just literally peeled it off and laid it up against the tree in the back yard," he said.

He had just gotten out of the shower. His grandson was in the basement playing video games. But his wife Lynnette was in the part of the house where the wind grabbed the roof and was hit by debris.

"It was just a quick rumbling of the house and that was it, it was gone," said Horn.

Nancy Lacey lives next door.

"I actually kind of looked out my back window of my dining room and I just saw this house go," she said.

She felt helpless.

"I was really terrified because I didn't know if they were alive, you know, you don't know what's going on, you don't know should I stay in the basement, should I get out and go check on them," said Lacey.

Luckily, Lynnette's injuries are minor.

"My biggest concern at the time was her, everything else is just stuff," said Horn.

Lynnette went to the hospital with scrapes and bruises on her hand and foot, but no broken bones. She was released.

In the neighborhood, a few trees and fences down, but this is the worst of it.
