View of Lincoln Parkway looking south toward Salt Creek -- A suspected tornado went through about two miles up from this point early this morning. Note the high-tension wires to the left. Several of these expensive structures were heavily damaged during this morning's storm as well as in last Friday morning's tornadoes and during the March 12 tornadoes. During last evening's report to the Logan County Board, Logan County EMA director Dan Fulscher had quipped that the power lines in Logan County seem to be marked targets for storms this year.
