Complete Coverage: May 2013 Tornado Outbreak

Parents are calling Stacey Montgomery a hero. Her class took their tornado precautions by lining up in the hallway. But when the tornado blew open the door, Stacey ran to pull it shut. She held onto the door until the wind pulled it from her grip and then tore it completely off the roof of the building.

Stacey says as she ran back toward the children, the tornado pulled her shoes off of her feet. That's when Stacey just laid over the children and began to pray.

Stacey says at this point, her students are saying they only remember "Ms. Montgomery talking to Jesus".
