[JUNE 10, 2004]  Damage assessments from the May 30 storm that destroyed three mobile homes and damaged 28 out of 36 other homes at Morningside Mobile Home Estates are not back yet, according to Terry Storer, assistant ESDA director. Storer said they probably will not ever know the full extent of the damage because some of the costs will be handled by private owners and insurances.

Straight-line winds that hit the park a week ago Sunday evening were recorded by the National Weather Service at 70 mph. The F-0 tornado was 40 yards wide and on the ground one-tenth of a mile. An F-0 classification is associated with wind patterns of 40 to 72 mph.

Cleanup operations were provided to the victims by Lincoln Streets and Alleys Department, Logan County Highway Department, Mount Pulaski Public Works and Lincoln Rural Fire Department Explorers. Hal Wolf from Lincoln Ag supplied a front-end loader.

The city of Atlanta, which has had some problems with one of its warning sirens, reported that both sirens worked when they were activated during that storm.
