Letter: Storm brought out the worst
Cottage Grove Minnesota 7584 80th Street South 55016

While watching fireworks at Strawberry Fest with my friends and family, a storm rolled in with no warning. While running with children and a pregnant woman, we passed several police officers (in their cars) offering no assistance at all. While the storm was short-lived it was very dramatic and came down hard. Many people were pushing and shoving and even knocked my pregnant friend down. We got split up due to the strong winds and rain. My wife had two little girls and people were trying to split them up. I had a stroller and two kids with me, and again, people were trying to split us up as well.
