    Alam says within minutes, he watched as the spout of water grew and the canopy over his gas pumps was no match for it. "It was like a tsunami like a tornado."

No one was hurt, but Alam's insurance company says it's going to take $65,000 to fix the canopy. "My insurance said the city should take care of that." But, at this point, a city attorney says Tulsa...
