Texas storms: 'I thought that lady was gonna die'

[Updated at 3:31 p.m. ET] Tina and Billy Clark saw the funnel cloud approaching and did what many of their neighbors did.

"We just ran and hid in the closet," Tina Clark told CNN after one of a swarm of tornadoes descended Wednesday night into their neighborhood in Hood County, some 30 miles southwest of Fort Worth, Texas.

"I was holding the door shut," Billy Clark told CNN. "You could feel the pressure from inside the house. It was like pulling on the door a little bit. The whole house was shaking really bad. It felt like the house was getting ripped apart, but we couldn't see anything from inside the closet, so we didn't know what exactly was going on."

"You could just hear stuff hitting the house," his wife said.

    Cost of insured cardiac patient needing a stent $300,000.
    Cost of an uninsured patient needing a stent $175,000.
    The difference does not go in the doctors pocket. Where is the money going to?

      Considering my brother is a dentist I can answer that for you. He LOSES money on uninsured patients. Student loans gobble up 35% of his earnings, overhead chews another20% of his earnings then he has to pay MORE taxes than you or I as a small business owner. So as a dentist he lives even poorer than I do. The socialists you elected in your government are lieing to you.

    I always make sure to build a shelter that will blow away in the wind because I want to end up in Oz like Dorothy and because the insurance company will give me a whole new flimsy house to use.
    Tornadoes are peaceful and friendly, like kittens. Can't go wrong with flimsy wood, nossir. Tornadoes are our friends.
