Pilot Liz Lillard was in Williston on Monday as she watched a live feed of a massive tornado pass over her children’s day care in Moore, Okla. Lillard’s son and daughter, ages 2½ and 7 months, were safe in a storm shelter at their day care, but phone lines were down, so Lillard didn’t know for two hours.
Everything had to come together just perfectly to create the killer tornado in Moore, Okla.: wind speed, moisture in the air, temperature and timing. And when they did, the awesome energy released over that city dwarfed the power of the atomic bomb that leveled Hiroshima.

Joplin began a day of solemn remembrance Tuesday with a sunrise service to honor the hospital staff, emergency workers and other survivors who sprang into action when one of the deadliest tornados in U.S. history carved through the city exactly one year ago.
Warm, humid weekend weather gave way to rain and snow in Minnesota on Monday.
Nearly a foot of snow fell to the north where power was disrupted and numerous school districts canceled classes. Eleven inches fell near Chisholm overnight Sunday with 8 inches in Bigfork and Cook, according to the National Weather Service.
The tornado hurtled toward the nursing home. Physical therapist Patti Gilroy said she saw the swirling mass barreling down through the back door, after she herded patients into the hallway in the order trained: walkers, wheelchairs, then beds.
