Security footage captured a tornado demolishing a Virginia Beach home.

A neighbor's camera captured the destruction as Jennifer Mingo's bedroom wall was ripped from her home.

Inside, Mingo clung to a recliner, literally holding on for her life.

"I thought I was going to die," Mingo said. "The TV went the nightstand went the dresser went everything was flying out the room and I thought the chair was going to be next and I said this is my time."

Amazingly, Mingo only suffered a few scratches. But she had to cover a gaping hole in her bedroom with a tarp.

The neighborhood is still cleaning up after the storm.
