NOTE: We've guessed that you're not using a client that supports colored tables and have tried to compensate. Low graphics mode looks much better on clients that do... we recommend switching to Netscape 3.0 or Microsoft Internet Explorer.

From an alley looking down Main Street. Power pole leaning, but not broken. The power was restored (house-by-house) to some residents by Sunday evening. The storms occurred Friday evening.

Empty grain bins collapsed and tossed about like paper drinking cups.

Burning branches and debris in the town park. Later, another site outside of town was also used for burning. Time to start over.
