Mom-to-be gets out before tornado

March 5, 2007

Albany --  Albany hospitals continue to treat patients evacuated from Sumter Regional Hospital after an F-3 tornado ripped it apart Thursday night. Robyn Ragsdale is nine months pregnant, and was in the hospital in Americus for observation because of all things, her blood pressure was high. 

She says the first sign the storm was near was popping in her ears, then the windows started to break. After the storm passed, she was transported to Phoebe Putney on a school bus with about forty other patients. 

She still hasn't seen the damage in her hometown. "It was more like being in a horror movie, really.  It's really indescribable.  Once I see the hospital, I'll probably be just amazed that I lived through it, but no one was hurt in the whole hospital and we just can't believe that.  We were definitely in God's hands that night."
