Walk-in beer coolers shelter 100 storm survivors

(Continued)

KOKOMO, Ind. —

As the young men climbed out of the debris, they heard screaming from a neighbor's yard. A car lay on top of Melody Vandergriff, 25, her head caught beneath the rear bumper. They and neighbors tried to lift the car but could not do so. Emergency crews arrived shortly and freed Vandergriff.

Meanwhile, manager Jerry Smith dug through the rubble at BMO Harris Bank until he found the tattered American flag from the front of his building. The flag, he said, was about the only salvagable item from the destroyed bank.

"When I heard my bank was leveled, I thought people were stretching the truth," he said. "But it was leveled."
