Josh Davis didn’t expect he’d spend part of his Sunday night trapped in rubble after a suspected tornado tore through his home on Cub Creek Street in Burke County. Davis’s family was away at church when the storm came through. He says he opened up a door and was pushed against the wall by the winds. After Davis managed to get the door shut, he tried taking shelter in his room. “I ran in my room and tried to drape myself in a comforter and get in the closet, but before I did the ceiling came down and trapped me underneath it,” Davis said.
