Delaware County family survives tornado hiding in a closet

A tornado ripped apart one Delaware County family's home as they huddled in a small closet Sunday night.

Perry and Laura Mast quickly grabbed their 3 year old and 7 month old sons and got into the closet moments before the tornado hit.

The twister destroyed their home near Kansas, Oklahoma, but they weren't hurt. If the family didn't get into that closet, they could have been killed.

Perry Mast: "That and God. That's the only thing I can figure out that saved our lives.”

Laura Mast: "Got my family. They're safe. I mean, you know we lost a lot of things but that stuff can be replaced, lives can't be replaced."

The tornado also destroyed eight chicken houses near the Mast's home.
