We had a pretty good storm come rolling through this weekend and a Tornado tore through a little town called Northwood. The tornado killed one and injured 18. Northwood is a little town to the North-East of us here in Jamestown and very near to the city of Grand Forks, ND.
It sometimes seems like everybody knows everybody up here in the north. That’s a good thing or a bad thing depending on your point of view. In any case, someone got ahold of some of the pictures (Northwood Tornado Pictures 8/26/2007) and posted them online.
The Governor is trying to get it declared a disaster by the President, and it’s already been done so on the state level. (Jamestown Sun Article – login may be required)
