“The worst kaboom sound, I thought I got hit by a missile or something,” Irene said. “It was more than thunder.”
The vehicle demolished the room where Irene would normally be watching TV and one of her dogs, Abbey, sleeps.
“I listened to the weatherman and he said it would thunder and they’re afraid of thunder so I took them to the bed with me,” said Irene.MORE NEWS: Patriots Plane Flies UNH Men's Soccer Team To NCAA Tournament Game In Oregon
