... actually, was it something like: when you went outside after it was over, everything was leveled to the ground and only your house was standing tall in the midsts of the chaos?
I honestly don't remember specifics like that. I was about 3 1/2, so the memories are a bit vague.
I remember a few of the 'stories' though. My uncle and aunt lived behind us, their mobile home came up off the ground and back down on the side (wall) on top of the steps that went through the wall (now floor). Yes, they were in it at the time, but they were ok.
The neighbor, my baby sitter (teen at the time) had no idea there was a tornado. She said she was walking down the hall in their mobile home drinking a glass of coca-cola and the wall came right off the house beside her. She said it peeled up just like the top of a sardine can.
My dad had us on the floor in middle of living room with a blanket laid over top of us. It was he, me and my mom (who was pregnant with my little brother at the time).

We don't get hurricanes in the Midwest but do get plenty of tornadoes. Not sure which is worst. The total and complete destruction dropping out of the sky with out warning of a tornado or the shear scale and waiting involved with a hurricane.
Been close to a couple of tornadoes but never the direct path.
