MOORE, Okla. - An elderly man took cover in an interior closet in his home during the Moore tornado Monday and lived to talk about it.

His daughter said he hid in the closet and his home was destroyed around him.

That closet was the only room left standing after the twister.

She said her father was unharmed, no minor injuries, not even a scratch.
