An Alabama woman says she fell asleep on the couch watching TV and didn't notice a tornado that ripped off part of her roof and damaged most of her home.

Betty Russell of Mobile said Friday that she had no idea anything was wrong until firefighters and neighbors came to check on her.

When she walked outside, she saw that huge trees had fallen across the south side of her home, including the bedroom where she normally sleeps.

The 76-year-old has lived in the home for more than 50 years. She says angels protected her. Repairs to the home will have to wait until after she celebrates Christmas with her family.
