On July 25, 2019, Elizabeth and John McCormick welcomed Harper and Josephine to their home on Northhaven Drive. On Sunday evening, October 20, 2019, the McCormicks were watching the Dallas Cowboys game when Elizabeth’s sister, Cheryl, texted them to take cover immediately. Elizabeth and John grabbed Harper and Josephine and made it inside their laundry room before the twister lifted the roof from their home. In less than three minutes, the dream home that Elizabeth and John designed was gone. Only the walls of the laundry room where the family had sheltered were left standing.
