When we arrived at Grandpa Frank Bangle's house, his beautiful big barn and house were gone and chickens wandered blind and stripped of feathers. With trees and timbers torn into small slivers, you cannot exaggerate or imagine the storm‟s force or the destruction. The cyclone tossed my grandfather into a water ditch.  Fortunately, someone found him right away otherwise he likely would have drowned. My grandmother was found sitting on a mattress out in the open.
