Rochester Tornado Saint Paul Globe Response

The response of St. Paul to the appeal for aid from Rochester was prompt and characteristic.  It took but a few minutes to place $5,000 at Gov. Hubbard’s disposal.  It is hoped that others will aid the stricken city.

The people of Rochester, Olmstead county, are nervous and apprehensive in regard to recurrence of tornadoes.  No wonder in remembrance of the terrible cyclone havoc of August 21, last year.  The Record and Union, alluding to the nervous, apprehensive distress of the inhabitants advises as follows:  “We conclude then, that the best thing we can do in this matter is to provide as safe places of resort as practicable in case of the approach of a tornado, observe the weather indications as closely as possible, and in the mean time, strive to be cool, calm and collected, attending to the ordinary duties an business of life, and if the weather appearances indicate the appearance of a tornado, repair, timely, to places of comparative safety and reverently trust the issues with God.”
