Swift County tornado hits family twice at two homes

But then her husband, Sanford, came tearing in the house and told her to run to the basement.
A screaming tornado appeared to be just a couple hundred yards behind the barn, said Sanford Skarsten on Wednesday morning while standing in the debris that was strewn through the family's rural Swift Falls yard.
