Sifting through the rubble, locals were devastated by the EF-4 tornado that ripped through the small town of Vilonia. The twister destroyed 50 of the 56 homes in the Wassom’s subdivision and took the lives of 16 people. Among the things recovered in the debris were the Wassom’s beloved cat and two dogs — one of which turned up a month later. All three pets miraculously survived. (Courtesy photo)
