Flooding worries rising day after tornadoes strike in central Minnesota

 


LITCHFIELD, Minn. – Rae Ann Brutger stood on her doorstep and wept.

The tornado had shoved her home 10 feet off its foundation, leaving her living room at a crazy tilt. She surveyed the damage, stepping cautiously over the smashed snowman figurines she had spent decades collecting and the family photos that had spilled out of an off-kilter cupboard.

“I sincerely realize it could have been much worse,” she said, wiping her eyes and nodding toward her neighbor’s place. The tornado that ripped though the Litchfield mobile home park flattened the double-wide trailer next door, leaving it an almost unrecognizable twist of metal.
