After storm, recovery takes work
Katie Clausen doesn't like the word "condemned." To her, it's got a negative connotation. "Uninhabitable" doesn't really sound any better.
Regardless, both words apply when it comes to describing the home she shares with boyfriend Kevin Lindquist. One month after a tornado shoved a tree through their living room wall, ripped more than half of the roof off and lifted the garage off its foundation, Clausen and Lindquist still can't stay in their home.
