"It was the scariest thing I've ever witnessed," Panther said. "Horrible noises. Horrible. It felt like everything was caving in on me."

Panther said she jumped in the bathtub when the storm hit.

"We're ok, thank God," she said. "It's just material. We'll weather the storm."

Texas Sky Ranger flew over an 18-wheeler that flipped in Grand Prairie early Wednesday morning. Emergency crews were at the scene.
