Practice makes perfect

It was only a drill!

[JULY 29, 2000]  At approximately nine o’clock this morning a tornado of unknown size and intensity struck the west side of Lincoln, causing significant damage at the American Freightways terminal.  This same tornado proceeded on a northeasterly course, and about five minutes later struck Atlanta.  There it caused some structural damage to the city warehouses, where a fire occurred.  A natural gas leak, downed power lines, a chlorine spill, several auto accidents, and an anhydrous tank fire were also reported.  Click here to view more pictures of the drill.

Pickle and pickle product problems
