BEMIDJI - Judy Faymoville was at Paul Bunyan Mall Monday with a friend when the storm hit. The duo was in Kmart, thinking the mall looked empty, "like a ghost town," when a man came up to them and told them they needed to go into the hallway near the mall restrooms to seek shelter.

About 45 minutes later, they drove to Judy's home and found, to her dismay, her favorite tree had crashed down in 80 mph winds.
