Tornado Strikes Close to Home

NDSM was fortunate that we suffered no structural damage to our building. But we are saddened by the losses all around us. And frustrated that we are not here for our neighbors in this time of need.

Unfortunately, we lost power because of the tornado and it was not restored until Thursday. In addition, roads to our location have been treacherous because of downed power lines and debris; many were closed completely by the police and traffic was horrific where roads were open, including Merrell Road.

On Friday, when we were assessing NDSM’s situation on site, we were also distributing two sets of new uniforms to 199 Edward H. Cary Middle School students forced to transfer to Benjamin Franklin Middle School because of heavy damage at Cary. It was very inspiring experience to be there for them.

The Medical Clinic re-opened at 7:00 am Monday,  October 28th, the Dental Clinic at 8:30 am., and the Emergency Aid Center at 9:00 am.

During this time our thoughts and prayers are with all those who’ve experienced losses.
