‘Angry night’ claims 2 N.C. teens

May 13, 2011 7:12:00 AM - thestate.com
As a tearful mother flew home Thursday from Central America to bury her twin daughters, pieces of a giant oak still lay on the bed where the girls were killed during a violent midnight storm.

The family’s mobile home, near the town of 500, is nearly sliced in half. The fallen oak stretches from just outside the front door, through the living room, into the bedroom and out the other side.

“It was raining, and it was storming, and it was thundering and lightning. It was a cruel, angry night,” next-door neighbor Hazel Greene said. “If all that storm wanted was a house, it could have had mine if it would have just let those kids alone.”

Leticia and Celia Arzola were 18 and known around town as “The Twins.” They both expected to graduate from high school in June.

“It’s upsetting for everyone,” said Terry Horn, chief of the Ellenboro Fire Department. “We’re not that big a place. Things like this tend to tear up a lot of folks.”
