Baseball/Softball size hail around today too. At noon and again around 5:30ish. Local volunteer fireman were called out to spot. They saw those tornados. Apparently there were 3 of them. It was on the ground then around Rolfe. Girlfriend-in-law's dad is police chief and she said she heard over the radio that one of the sherriffs deps got too close and the tornado took off the lights on his car!! Whoops!
quite the storms around here i am in algona and have sister in Humbolt and sis-in-law in rolfe === tried both cell phones but no answer yet - hope all are ok.sounds like Rolfe got hit real badas did Bradgate-- it is said that there are no trees standing there
Anyway, the point of my post (my gosh, I'm rambling, I must be getting old) - is to say how in awe I am of our LEOs and firefighters who go out into the worst weather to keep an eye out for us.
Here's some more stories about Sheriff's Deputy Robert Jolley.
