The fire station at Spencer, SD, was anchored to its slab foundation with 1/4-inch bolts, before the 1998 tornado‘s southeast part popped the entire building bodily off the bolts and disintegrated it somewhere in midair. The south-facing, sheet-metal bay doors (one of which is seen on the ground at lower left) compromised easily, letting in a sudden and tremendous wind force that shoved upward and outward against ceiling, roof and walls. This scene was eventually rated marginal F4, consistent with debris-laden winds detected by Doppler on Wheels a few tens of meters above the surface. Still, something is very odd here. The red fire trucks did not move—indeed, were barely damaged except for lost windows—and the firemen’s gloves remained almost precisely as placed in their neatly organized rows, on the floor of what had been a closet.
