Two tornadoes tore through the center of Wendell yesterday. From the grapevine I hear about 100 people were displaced because of the damage. Otherwise I haven't heard of any deaths or injuries. One goat emerged from a destroyed barn unscathed, pulled from the rubble by the local librarian. It was startling to see large trees completely uprooted, power lines snapped, homes without roofs, etc. Doing some research, I see that Wendell has a history of tornadoes. We were without power, water, or electricity until 4 this morning. I read Oppen by candlelight.
