Brandon Mobley was working on the roof of a restaurant adjacent to Starbucks in Kokomo, Indiana, when a tornado struck Wednesday afternoon. Mobley went inside the restaurant where managers were ushering patrons and staff to the walk in freezer. Instead of going into the freezer, he opted to stay in the restaurant dinning area. ?I had never saw a tornado before except what I saw on TV and in the movies,? Mobley told CNN. He sad he didn?t realize the severity of the weather till it was too late to get in the walk-in freezer. He started recording on his phone when he noticed debris flying around outside. All of a sudden, the entire Starbucks blew over. ?I knew there were people in there since the parking lot was full,? he said. ?When the storm passed I went straight over to what was left of the building.? He noted that he did call 911 but he knew it would take them sometime to get to the scene. He had tools on him since he had been repairing the a/c on the roof of the restaurant. When he got to Starbucks he heard people in the restrooms. The restaurant manger helped him as he took the doors off the hinges and helped rescue the people stuck inside. ?There were about 15 people inside both the bathrooms,? Mobley said. ?Not a single one of them were injured. They were just shook up and panicked.? Mobley said if it wasn?t for the Starbucks manager getting all the people in the restroom they wouldn?t have made it since the building had collapsed.
