South Carolina Man emerges unharmed after violent storm flattens church around him

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Craig Robinson heard the wind turn violent outside Refuge Temple of St. Stephen, where he cleans up every Saturday afternoon to prepare for the next morning's services.

Curious, the 50-year-old Moncks Corner resident made his way from the sanctuary to the front of the church. That's when he saw the tornado outside.

"I bent down on my knees and asked the Lord to have mercy," Robinson said, standing before the wood, brick and glass remains of Refuge Temple on Saturday evening. Shortly after he began his prayer, he heard the roof collapse and, over the next five minutes or so, nearly everything around him turned to rubble while he stayed on the floor.

Read it all from the front page of the local paper.
