Junction City resident, Dr. Nicholas Hurkus said, "I was fixing a cup of coffee, I was looking through the window at around 9 this morning and all of the sudden I looked over by the school house and I just saw a tree uplift." Dr. Hurkus lives in the small town of Junction City. He was relaxing, enjoying the day when his wife called and said, bad weathers heading your way. So he looked out the window— "Almost looked like when you put water in a bottle and you spin it around and see that twister in a bottle. It sounded like a freight train when it came through. I was like Lord where do I stand so I dont get hurt." And directly across the street from Dr. Hurkus house are the Junction City schools. Teachers there say they had been monitoring the weather and getting kids ready, just in case. Barbara Washam teaches at Junction City, "Within a couple minutes of her going I saw swirling winds outside and I hollered at her that we had swirling winds. So we got the kids down and then I saw this tree thats down in the road, I saw it pop, saw transformer blow. Dr. Hurkus said, "It was really big-- small at the bottom and real big up top. I watched it as it came through, picked up Mrs. Wheelis’ trees. Maybe about twenty seconds or so, just really fast." But as quick as the storm blew in to town--- crews were out cleaning it up even faster. "It was a miracle that no one got hurt."
