“I just wanted to make sure we were safe. None of the kids knew what was going on. Between all the wind blowing and trees falling, I just kept calling on Jesus. That’s all I know to do in a case like this. He just kept His hand over us,” Ritter said.

As South Carolina deals with a pandemic that led to unprecedented steps to stop the spread of the coronavirus, the state was struck by an estimated nine confirmed and suspected tornadoes early Monday morning that killed nine people in small towns from the Upstate to the Lowcountry.

A woman who escaped unhurt after a series of the powerful tornadoes swept across South Carolina Monday morning, leaving at least nine people dead, says she survived by “calling on Jesus.”

The North resident, Allison Ritter, told The Times and Democrat that she was at home when she heard the howl of the tornado begin to rip through her neighborhood.

“Once I heard that wind blowing, I knew. My children and I were in the house when it happened. I never experienced anything like that before. My mom ended up calling me right before it happened and about five minutes later was when I ran and got my kids,” she said.

“I started hearing all the wind blowing, windows breaking, trees cracking, debris just hitting up against the house. It was a lot.”

The frightened mom said she gathered her children together, including a newborn, and sheltered in a bathroom. When it was done, she found an uprooted tree and twisted metal scattered outside, Christian Post Reports.
