STORM RIPS THROUGH NEWELL, MARATHON

Turkey site hit by twister in 2011, flu in 2015 and wind Wednesday

TOUGH LUCK: High winds from the south ripped parts of the roof off of three turkey barns owned by Dale Christiansen east of Newell early Wednesday afternoon. The storm took a similar path as the tornadoes in April 2011 that hit this site. In addition, this was the first local farm to be hit by avian flu in 2015. TIMES photo by DOLORES CULLEN
