tornadoHorrified Filipino Americans living near the tornado ravaged Moore, Oklahoma described the moment the tornado ripped through the small town.

“We were one mile from Moore, where the tornado hit.”  Rose Abrogar told GMA.  “You will hear a rushing of wind but it’s just a matter of seconds. It went through us,” she said. She survived by hiding in a closet near the center of the house.

Michael Chan was in his car when the tornado hit.

“When I exited the highway, up to the main street, I saw the tornado was huge. And I was driving right into it..,” Chan said, adding that “everything was a blur. I just ran into my house got my dog, got into my truck, I thought I was going to die with my dog.”

The Philippine Consulate as of earlier today said it was not aware of any Filipino casualties. You can read more about the tornado in GMA
