How unlucky can one family be? 10 days after a fire ripped through their Central New York home, it was hit by a tornado.

Zach and Roxanne Henderson's house in West Winfield caught fire on June 13. The family wasn't home at the time but they did lose a dog and cat in the blaze. Another dog is recovering from smoke inhalation after being saved by a firefighter.

The fire left the home uninhabitable, so the family moved into a hotel.

Ten days later an EF1 tornado with 100 MPH winds touched down. The National Weather Service says the twister began near the intersection of Meeting House Road and Marriot Road, where the Henderson's live.

Family Home Full of Mold

Roxanne's grandfather built the home in the 1960s. Today it's full of water and smoke damage from the fire along with roof damage from the tornado.

"After almost 2 weeks since the fire, it’s now full of mold, maggots, glass, and who knows what else."

Direct Path of Tornado

Randy and Angela Schaffer's home was in the direct path of the twister. Luckily no one was home when it touched down. "My husband was at an auction and I was at camp."

Angel was driving back after a neighbor called about the tornado. She drove through torrential downpours and strong winds but when she hit the other side , she said everything was beautiful. "I thought my husband was up to something because it was so nice."

Then Angela came over the hill and saw that canoe. It belonged to her neighbor and was bent over power lines. "That's when I knew this couldn't be good."
