ORE CITY, TX (KLTV) -

Saturday's storms damaged homes; some worse than others. One homeowner lived at her home near Lake O' The Pines for thirteen years until a tree came crashing down on her roof this past weekend.

“We heard the wind blowing and my husband said this is [about] to be bad, 'cause you could feel the house actually moving. And I just said, 'God protect us,' 'cause I knew something was [about] to happen,” Kay Watson said.

Watson was home with four of her family members when a tree came crashing through her roof. The tree fell through her dining room, barely missing her bedroom.

“If it had fallen straight it [would have] fallen right on me and my husband; [...] it would have killed us,” she said. 

Watson said the experience was terrifying and she is happy her family is safe. 

“All I can say is God was with us 'cause I told my husband I just prayed," she said. "I said 'God protect me and my family' [...] and he did, He protected us.”

The family said they are grateful to be alive and to see another day.

    The Harrison County jail is making several changes to its policy and procedures to make sure another jail inmate isn't able to escape like one did in early June. Gary Gorman had been assigned to an inside jail worker’s position at the time of his escape. He was helping with the trash and managed to walk out of the jail with a group of inmates who were authorized to leave, according to Lt. Jay Webb.
