A KJAN listener in the area of Norway Center in Cass County, sent KJAN these photos following a Tuesday night storm event. They speculated an EF-1 tornado may have caused the damage, due to “the way the wind was surging with the hail the cops out here or shredded beans were uprooted.  Crops are a total loss.” The property owner is working to remove the tree and clean-up from the storm.
