Charles Lannan was watching TV early Wednesday when the storm outside suddenly grew ominously quiet. The next thing he knew, his mobile home was in the air and he felt himself in a free fall, thinking he would never see daylight again. "I was thinking, 'Oh God, this is it,' " he said. "All I remember was rolling. It was like, one one-thousand, two one-thousand and it was over. I started digging myself out of the rubble."
