RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - NASCAR Nationwide series driver Eric McClure says he and his family are safe after a tornado brought ``probably the scariest few seconds of our lives.''
McClure says he and his family had just returned from church at 10 p.m. Wednesday when storms in Abingdon prompted him to take cover in the basement with his wife and three daughters.
Moments later, he says a tornado hit the home. The 10- to 12-second assault shook the home, sent branches and bricks flying and flooded three of the four floors.
The family huddled under a basement staircase and stayed there about four hours, unsure whether another storm was coming. They eventually took shelter in the home of McClure's father down the street.
