Grace Coada escaped what is left of her home after the Blount County Fire Department kicked in her door. Grace said she had been in her bedroom before the tornado hit when her cat, Bubba, started acting strange and crying to get in the house. Grace left her bedroom and went to the front of the house to let the cat in, opening the door just as the tornado hit, knocking her into the front room. The house was picked up from its foundation and dropped in her front yard, as seen in the photo to the right. Bubba is still missing.
