Saint Cloud Tornado Saint Paul Signal Service Response

In the signal office no report of the wind storm had been received.  “As we have no station at either of the wrecked cities,” said Mr. [G. N.] Salisbury, the deputy observer, “we shall probably get no direct report.  It will be sent direct to Washington.  The day is one with such atmospheric conditions as are usually noticed when cyclones appear.  The temperature was high and the pressure low.  Mr. [Patrick F.] Lyons and myself had been speaking of the fact early in the afternoon, and he had remarked that it would not be strange if a cyclone should be hear of before night.”
