A Guthrie family's life changed one year ago when they had twin boys. They knew they needed a safe place to go during Oklahoma's unpredictable weather.
"How are we going to do this? How are we going to afford a storm shelter? And that's when news 9 was having the giveaway," Cassie Harrison said.
Cassie Harrison's husband, Nick, was confident he was going to win a Flat Safe Shelter when he called News 9 during last May's giveaway.
"I thought he was kidding because he was on the phone and he was ecstatic and I said you are just pulling my leg," Harrison said.
Nick wasn't kidding. We were there when Flat Safe converted the Harrisons garage into a safe haven from storms.
"It's like winning the lottery for our family," Harrison said.
It was a jackpot providing peace of mind.
"Every time storm season comes out, you always get a little nervous. Okay what are we going to do if something comes? Now I don't even have to think about that," Harrison said.
Now more Oklahomans have a shot at winning a shelter just like the Harrison's with the second year of our Flat Safe giveaway.
"Pay attention to the news. Keep calling News 9. Keep trying. The feeling is just irreplaceable knowing you can have a safe place for your family to go," Harrison said.
