Another GoFundMe has been set up to help a family hit by Sunday night's tornado.

Tracy Thibodeaux has set up a crowd funding account for her daughter and grandchildren, who lost everything in the storms, including their home and vehicle.

"It is nothing short of a miracle that they came out of this alive, with only scratches and bruises. She has the worst of the bruises and cuts from trying to protect her babies. Once everything stopped moving, she had to pull herself out of knee deep mud in a ditch and pull one of her twins from under a piece of the wall, her other 2 girls out of the the ditch full of water and didn't know where the almost 3 year old was," Thibodeaux writes.

The child was found by two men who came to help, she wrote.

"She has to start over from scratch. Money will help her recover but so will other donations such as clothes and household items. Thank you for taking time to read her story and for helping if possible. Prayers will also be needed during this difficult time," she writes.
