Kayak and turtle races- perfect combo

Sammi,Hunter, Mitch and Katie all attempted to win the Turtle race in Longville MN, no success in doing so, but still a great time.

TORNADO touch down in Park Rapids and Emmaville

Just less than 2 miles from Sleeping Fawn a tornado touched down. The Tornado started along Hubbard just after 9 am headed north through Park Rapids and north up county rd 4 to Emmaville and toward Lake George. Multiple houses are with damage and many trees lost. No destruction to the resort to report. Most damage is out of main road viewing range, unsure of any fatalities or injuries at this time.
Emmaville was turned into a command post for rescue vehicles. I was able to capture a few photos of the crew. All areas of damage was closed off to public.
