GUTHRIE, Oklahoma -

A family could hear the nails pulling from the roof. A mother, her son and a toddler were inside as the storm ripped through. 

"The electricity and the TV cut off and so we just thought it was just a bad rain storm. We could see it raining outside and everything," Noah Cook said.

But whipping winds caught the family off guard, tearing off their roof while they were inside.

"The roof just started getting ripped off, and we're running around trying to figure out why the roof is getting ripped off until we realize it's probably wind or something," Cook said.

Within seconds, the roof was gone and debris and insulation covered their front yard. 

Cook, his mother and a 2-year-old they were babysitting found themselves scrambling for cover. 

"They called me as soon as it happened. They were inside just like they would be any other day," John Cook, Noah Cook's father, said.

John Cook was on his way home when he got a call from his son. 

He had no idea what he was coming home to. 

"We're just trying to clear out what we can and then worry about the rest later. Everybody is safe," John Cook said.

No one was hurt and the American Red Cross is providing the family with a hotel for the night.
