Cyclone News Story Akron, Iowa


The Akron Register estimates the total loss in its town from the recent
storm at $12,000, instead of $150,000, according to telegraphic reports. As
usual, strange stories are told of the vagaries of the wind. The cyclone
played complete havoc with the house of Frank Lund, grinding the body of the
house to slivers and scattering it and the household furniture in every
direction. The roof was left, and settled where the foundation had been, as
neatly as though placed there by skilled workmen. The little baby, which
was sleeping in bed, was found after the storm under the house roof
unharmed, and sleeping as serenely as if nothing had happened.
