My heart and prayers go out to all Marshalltown. For many year,I worked on either Center Street or First Avenue, directly across from the Courthouse. I have relatives and many friends there and Marshalltown was a second home for me, living in nearby Haverhill.
It is really hard to comprehend the devastation that occurred. We here in Newton were under a storm warning and at the time I was at Hy-Vee and we were all asked to go to the coolers as a storm was approaching Altoona. Fortunately, we were not hit, but two close by towns, Marshalltown and Pella, were.
I pray that Marshalltown and all the damaged businesses will be able to come back fully, it would be a crushing blow to lose Lennox.
