A tornado that went through Hickman last night brought back memories from the Hallam tornado nine years ago.
It's an eerie feeling anytime you hear the tornado sirens go off. While the physical damage can be covered up, the mental hurt doesn't always go away.
For Norris football player Kyler Urbanovsky, one memory comes to mind.
"We went down into our basement and we were lighting candles," Urbanovsky said, "and our treadmill blew against the wall."
Kyler's house was wiped out nine years ago. Though he wasn't surprised by the amount of damage, there is one thing he finds hard to believe.
"It was kind of weird because in my room there was nothing left but a keyboard," Urbanovsky said. "In my sister's room, which was right across the hall, all the dolls were still standing and everything. It hadn't even been touched."
Kyler isn't the only one with a lasting image of the 2004 twister.
"The last thing I had done that night before I left campus was to take a bucket of whiffle balls and place it inside the storage shed," Norris athletic director Greg Erbin said.
When he went back to assess the damage the next morning, he couldn't believe what he found.
"The only thing left there was this bucket of whiffle balls," Erbin said.
With last night's tornado so close to town again, Kyler said this time was different.
"It's not as scary now because we went through it already."
