CHENEY, Wash. - A family of five, including a 12-year-old child, have been forced out of their home after a huge gust of wind ripped off the roof of their mobile home.

The family says it started making noise last night, and they were praying it would hold - but at 8:30 am, it peeled away.

Now, pieces of insulation are flapping in the wind and blowing against the fence. Luckily, nobody was physically hurt, but they are very emotionally upset.

The Red Cross was on the way to help the family find shelter in the meantime.
