Linda Tordsen, Pam Haugen and Nancy Vlahos’ story is told in “Out of the Blue” by Scott Thoma, who also experienced the 1968 tornado firsthand. Linda owned Gold ‘n’ More in Sauk Centre from 2000 to 2011. She is shown above with newspaper clippings, a signed copy of the book, and a photo of Nancy taken with her just a month before the tornado.
