There is a tale of survival a week and a half after the twister.
Pat Cole had been walking with her brother-in-law looking at his home when they heard barking, a cry for help.
Pat Cole, found the dog, says, "He said well it sound's like it's hurt so we started looking around and he had to go inside and come back and look through those windows and look down in that hole."
When they realized the dachshund was underneath the rubble that was once a five-plex, they rushed down the street for help.
It took rescuers about 20 minuets to remove the debris and rescue the dog.
Cole says, "The animal control officer got here just about the time they got the dog out so it worked out real well and he turned the air on for the dog and everything and the dog seemed happy."
Officers took the dog to the Humane Society, checking it's ID, and making sure the dog was alright.
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruely to Animals has stepped in to help the Humane Society take care of animals and reconnect them with families.
A big help for them to reconnect has been dog tags and microchipping.
The operations chief of the ASPCA says when families are reunited, there are a lot of emotions.
Kathryn Destreza, Crisis Operations Chief, ASPCA, says, "Oh, it's always joy, a lot of crying, a lot of just relief and joy."
And for Pat Cole, she just hopes the dachshund is reunited with its family.
Cole says, "That's amazing that he could make it that many days without any food or water or anybody to take care of him."
Although we don't know the owner of the dachsund, everyone in that apartment complex did survive.
