Port Huron Area
Gets Red Cross
Emergency Help
Speial To The Daily
PORT HURON - Grim, tired men walk the streets of this
tornado-torn city trying to cope with the destruction left in the wake
of a three-minute twister which struck here at 4:30 p.m. Thursday.
Cots, mobile units of the Red Cross, and administrative help
are being rushed to the area to aid the homeless. Roads are crowded
with silently moving cars. National Guardsmen stand along the
highways directing the steady flow of traffic.
IN THE SOUTH section of Port Huron houes have been levelled.
The streets are littered with trees which lie askew blocking the
movement of cars.
Red Cross workers have set up a center in the heart of the
devastated area in the Naval Reserve Training Center. People,
slightly dazed and in need of G-
help are flocking here. They ask
for candles to light their homes S v n F e
which are without electricity.
Some, the homeless, are being
fed. The cost in life is miraculous-
ly small. One is reported dead
here, thirty-nine injured. Seven-
