Tornadoes kill one, leave wide path of damage in west-central Minnesota


Teresa Akerman hunkered down under a table in the basement of her home outside Ashby, Minn., Wednesday afternoon as a tornado took aim at her farm. Shaking, she sent a text message to her daughter to tell her she loved her.

“I didn’t know if I’d be able to say that again,” Akerman, 67, said the day after at least one and possibly two twisters roared across Otter Tail County in west-central Minnesota. “It sounded like a great big wind machine. It was the sound of death.”

Akerman survived unscathed, and her house, aside from the south wall being splattered with mud, grass and water stains, did, too. But others were not so fortunate.
