Trees down near Kennedy High School

Thought you all might appreciate these pictures. Sounded like a freight train come through just behind Kennedy High School Monday night. Afterward, found our 40ft pine blown over in our driveway. No one hurt thank goodness!

I also live in Hiawatha, right by the fire station. I thought it was a tornado too. Wind picked up real quick, and you could definitely hear the freight train noise.

Same noise on upper south east/marion area. Thought it was a tornado too. Shook the windows pretty hard in the house. Passed quickly.
