'Miracle babies' to return home as tornado cleanup begins


CHARLOTTE, NC (WSOC) -- Two young sisters and their brother are out of the hospital after a tornado sucked them from their east Mecklenburg County home.

The home was completely destroyed and three of the Stevens’ families’ four children ended up in the back yard.

The roof was torn off by the tornado, littering children’s toys all over the yard.

"The next thing I remember is I was sitting on the top of the house with my oldest twin Ashley and everything was gone," said mother Latonya Stevens.

Three of the children were thrown from the home, including the son, 7-year-old Jamal, dangerously close to Interstate 485.

Amber, 3, was found in her home's yard under some debris. Ayanna, 4, landed in a neighbor's yard.
