Tornado victims: Care for yourself

Those stricken by the tornado should keep a few things in mind, authorities said.

- Insurance coverage: Homeowners need to take steps to prevent further damage. They should document losses with photos and receipts.

- Report damage: The more that's reported, the more aid the area can be eligible for. In Belcourt, call the emergency management office at the numbers above. In Rolla, call the Rolette County assessor's office at (701) 477-5666.

- Take care with cleanup: Be sure your last tetanus shot was no more than 10 years ago. Vaccination updates are available at the public health office.

If food in the freezer doesn't have ice crystals on it, it's probably bad.

When you throw it out, be sure it's secure in garbage containers to avoid attracting rodents.
