Dog Discovered Under Tornado Rubble After 30 Hours, Obviously

The best place to hide during a tornado is as close to a beloved family dog as possible, some say. It doesn’t even necessarily have to be your dog. Thanks to an evolutionary mutation that scientists have yet to understand, beloved family dogs have developed an immunity to tornadoes. Jon Byler Dann assumed that his dog, Maggie — whom he’s had for eleven years, since she was a puppy — had perished in the tornado that struck his home on Sunday in Washington, Illinois. Thirty hours later, while picking through the rubble, he heard her barking, and found her underneath a pile of carpet. The dire but then heartwarming moment mirrors a similar — but even more dire and more heartwarming, if we’re being honest — dog discovery following a tornado in Oklahoma in May.
