An Alabama woman said Friday she fell asleep on the couch and didn’t realize a tornado had ripped off part of her roof and damaged most of the home until firefighters and neighbors came to check on her. Betty Russell, who will turn 77 on Dec. 26, said she slept through the violent storm Thursday night after she dozed off on the sofa watching TV. She was woken by sirens from rescuers in the area afterward. "I didn’t know I was that heavy a sleeper," she said. "It had caved in the south side of my house and honestly I didn’t hear it. I cannot believe I didn’t hear it but I didn’t."
