In early November, numerous tornadoes touched down in Tennessee. They tore apart homes and wreaked havoc on entire towns.

They were absolutely devastating, and one of the tornadoes took one woman’s life.

That tornado managed to lift a house off its foundation and flip it onto its roof. The house’s owner, psychology professor Angie Walker, didn’t survive the storm. Angie’s husband and two children all survived.

Angie was the only person to lose her life during these tornadoes, but two others were taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

Angie’s dog, Buddy, made it out of the tornado alive.

He was scared and bewildered, but otherwise unharmed.

After the storm, Buddy wandered around the wreckage, probably looking for Angie. Cameras captured footage of Buddy walking around the property. He ran through the destroyed house and into the front yard, looking back at where he used to live.

Fortunately, Buddy was found and rescued. He’s now living with Angie’s other dog, June, at the home of a family friend.

In the video below, you’ll see the heartbreaking footage of Buddy wandering around his owner’s destroyed property, as well as a short statement from Angie’s sisters.

Although this storm was devastating for the Walker family, hopefully Angie can rest in peace knowing her beloved dogs are being well cared for by family friends.
