    11 Year Old Rides out Lenox Tornado in Dryer

    Austin Miller was home watching “PBS Kids'' when the panicked phone call came from his mother.
    Get in the laundry room, now, she said. There are tornadoes coming.
    The 11-year-old rode out the storm Wednesday afternoon inside the clothes dryer as the twister demolished the second floor above him, the roof collapsed and debris swirled about.
    “If he wouldn't have been in that laundry room, it would have come right down on him,” said the boy's mother, Jessica Miller, less than 24 hours after a tornado wrecked their home. “I'm proud of him for doing that.''

    I believe that the CF acceptable age was determined to be somewhere between 11 and 13.

    Looks like mom is a Cyclone fan, so the boy probably is, too.

    I caught that also. She's wearing one of the "walking Cy" T-shirts in the video at the bottom of the page. Got to be good people if she's a Cyclone fan!


    A storm is brewing.

    If he had been 20, he might not have fit.
