“My wonderful neighbors saw me outside, they kind of knew the situation so they started grabbing limbs as I was cutting them off and helped move them to the street,” Mehrvarz said. “[I’m] so very thankful to them.”

Despite the harrowing experience, Heather and her family made it to Piedmont Hospital, where she gave birth to healthy twin boys, Stuart and Solomon, FOX 5 News reported.

“Sweet little angels,” she said of her new additions. “So Irma was no indication of their behavior.”
