VAN, Texas (KXAN) – Cameras were rolling on an emotional reunion in North Texas as a family finally got to see the damage after a tornado ripped through their neighborhood Sunday.
“I really don’t know what else to say…I’m just glad that my dog is back,” storm survivor Andy Bouchillon said after finding his dog safe. “I didn’t know (if I was going to see the dog again). I really didn’t know. I’m just glad he’s okay.”
Bouchillon was overcome with emotion after finding Tater.
Bouchillon, his wife, and their 2-week-old daughter, along with their two dogs, were trying to get away from the storm.
The twister flipped the truck and Tater ran off.
Everyone survived and Tater is now back with his family.
