Local man in Paris when terrorists attacked

Devin Cobb was looking forward to vacationing in Paris for a second time. While out on the town, the terrorists struck just a few blocks away.

"I did hear sirens, and I realized I had heard more sirens prior to actually finding out what was going on,"Devin said.

Devin says he rushed back to the apartment where he was staying.

"It was very somber for the next couple of days. It was quiet in that same area, really quiet, a lot less traffic, some stores were closed."

The world traveler says he was scheduled to return to the US on Saturday. But he missed his flight due to tightened security at the airport. He rescheduled for a Sunday departure.

"They were very thorough about the security checks and they checked a lot of bags. They opened your bags and pulled all of your stuff out."

He says he'll vacation again in France, but he's not sure when. "I love Paris, the country of France. I will be back, but of course I have to be smart about the timing of the travel."
