Other portions of the garage were located about a block south of the garage site near a corn crib and hanging from fences about a fourth of n mile south of the place. Large and small tree limbs were carried from the grove north of' the house and strewn in nearby •fields for hundreds of yards from the house. (UDM Newsfoto-Engraving) _ A nice looking, large Iree in Ihe back yard of the home occupied by the "Ray Haugens at 109 East Oak street, Algona, was shattered into a few big pieces of kindling during Thursday's storm The photo above shows the'tree (most of it is lying on the ground to the left) as it appeared after ithe sitorm. The stump, left center, with about 18 feet still standing, was stripped of its bark in the process. • , Fortunately, the big tree fell southwest, missing the house, which undoubtedly would have been damaged seriously if the itree had landed upon it.

Most of the damage, in -Algoha was limited • to telephone „ ahc lectric lines, trees and TV "an- ennas. Largest tree to bite the dust was one behind the residence occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Ray Haugen at 109 Blast Oak Street. Telephone and electric Service was restored in total aboul 24 hours after the storm. t Loss of power and lights 1 forced some workers off the' job, including the entire force at Universal Manufacturing Co. where lime cards couldn't even be punched when this workers left. Other serious damage to buildings and trees occurred. on th'e farms of Bob Skillirig arid.", John Altaian in the Irvington area arid on the Oswald Thilges farm east of Algona.
