- Wayne Eve was hit in the head by a brick when a & # 39; tornado & # 39; his house destroyed

A homeowner has revealed how he survived miraculously after his house was flattened by what he knew was a tornado.
Wayne Eve was at his house near Bendigo with his dog when his joy over the much needed rainfall took a sudden turn.
He saw the devastating storm cell approaching before it was struck with a brick in its head and knocked unconscious.
When Mr Eve woke up he saw that his house was completely destroyed, but he and his dog were undamaged.
& # 39; It just sounded like four jet engines were just starting up, mate. It is just something I have never heard before (I will never forget the sound), & he said 9News.

& # 39; It is definitely a tornado. It just went right through the middle and it literally missed me a meter. & # 39;
A neighbor said the remaining destruction & # 39; as a war zone & # 39; and they were surprised that Mr. Eve was still alive.
The winds were so fierce that his double brick house was torn apart and hundreds of meters away stuck sticks of wood into the ground.
Mr. Eve, his wife Rachel and their one-year-old son are now being left to rebuild their home that was happily insured.

The family searched the rubble and managed to find Mr. Eve's wedding ring, but unfortunately there is still no mention to the family cat.
A GoFundMe was founded by Mrs. Eve's brother and his wife to help them rebuild their lives. They have collected almost $ 10,000 in less than two hours.
& # 39; (We) were destroyed by the loss of their home and all their belongings yesterday in a freak tornado near Bendigo. Any donations are greatly appreciated to rebuild their lives and home, & # 39; according to the description.
Mrs. Eve has placed the lender on her Facebook account and thanked the donors who donated and still used humor.
A Go Fund Me was founded by Mrs. Eve's brother and his wife to help them rebuild their lives and, unbelievably, they raised nearly $ 10,000 in less than two hours.
