Nope, the lack of siren warning us Manhattan farmers both in town and out made the news. [email protected] I was in the basement in Foxford, while the tornado had touched down at 12:39pm, just then hearing the faint siren. The god dam warning was out on TV at 12:20pm. So how the hell does this town relay this to the siren? Maybe a town flunky, off on Sunday had to run over and flip the switch. Lucky it did not hit the town proper.... What say you Chief? Manhattan official couldn't be reached, maybe the media need to ask the hard questions next time the corner a official out in the wreckage site...

I live behind BP and heard the sirens around 12:30. You can't hear them in the basement!!! No sirens in the country. Did you just move here or something?

Has anyone seen or heard from our local politicians? Mayor? Anyone????? Any large scale advertised ,organized help movement????
The Village of Manhattan did not do crap for this disaster. Regardless of where tornado came down , Mayor should have made an attempt to get out front. School kids were out helping on the news. No city officials anywhere to be seen. Manhattan is really a horribly run village. Has not improved since I moved here almost 20 years ago.

Just because they were not on TV doesn't mean none of our elected officials helped out. I know for a fact that a lot of them did. Not everybody is out to get a pat on the back! In fact some wish to remain anonymous.

I know several unsung citizens that have helped out. Like the other poster said, some don't need the pat on the back. Wonder why some do?

Sure, on the surface he is showing empathy. But just like Rahm says, don't let a trajedy go to waste, he was also out firming up votes for his next election. And where's the big Walsh when people need him?

What drugs were you on when you wrote this? Wow! I'm sure your English teachers didn't know whether to laugh or cry when they read your papers.
