A brief but strong wind and rain storm rattled Morris residents and, undoubtedly, had others making calls to insurance agents.

The National Weather Service issued a Tornado Warning at about 6:40 p.m. Thursday, but by that time straight-line winds were doing their damage.


The wind storm also caused the evacuation of West Wind Village. Residents were returned to their residences unharmed, according to Stevens County Sheriff Randy Willis.
