Thus far a total of 10.36 inches of rain has been measured here. The extremely wet weather has stopped all farming activity in what normally is a very busy time. Record crops of corn, milo and silage still stand in the rain soaked fields waiting the harvest crews while thousands of acres of land await the preparation for wheat planting which normally would be un- derway.

Hardest hit of any in this area, reported thus far to The Express, was the Van Van Meters, who live in Republic County, about three miles south of Hardy. Their trailer home was destroyed Tuesday evening by what is thought to have been a tornado. The Van Meters weren't injured as they had sought shelter in the basement of an unoccupied home on the farm near their trailer home. He is employed by Duane Dahl. The roof was torn from the barn and several outbuildings and grain bins destroyed at the Rodney McCammon farm two miles west and one mile south of Mankato. Fortunately, the McCammon home wasn't damaged by the storm, ac- cording to a report from the Jewell Caunty Sheriff's office. County $ in Rainfall across the area was quite general. Hardy reported an official 2.94 inches while Superior officially received 2.09 inches. Unofficial reports from Mankato indicate about 2 inches of rain fell there while only about 0.8 inches fell at Nelson. Unconfirmed reports have ranged as high as five inches. Water was over Highway ti east of Superior between the Don Kottmeyer and Norman Stenson homes Tuesday evening. The Kottmeyers report having 4.8 inches in their gauge while Stenson's had 4.5 inches. It is reported that a car from Chester went into the ditch between the Kottmeyer and Stenson homes when the high- way was flooded. The occupants crawled out the windows in an attempt to keep the interior of the car dry. Few reports have been received at press time con- cerning the welfare of friends and relatives of Express area regidents who lived in the hard hit sections of Kansas. census Mr. and Mrs. Jewell Murray of Clay Center, former Jewell County residents, report that they and their four children escaped without injury but all they saved from their home, which was destroyed, was a washer and dryer. Mrs. Murray, who was at work when the storm struck, reports having the back window sucked from her car as she drove home. When she reached the house and attempted to open the door, the windows in the home blew out. The Murrays then sought shelter in the basement of a neighbor's home.
