But it didn't prove to be that easy. The report from Terre Haute said that on October 9, a CAA employee at Hulman Municipal Airport had observed a silvery UFO. Three minutes later a pilot, flying east of Terre Haute, had seen a similar object. The report lacked many details but a few phone calls filled me in on the complete story.
He was found walking along South Fifth Street after the storm, but his home could not be found as it had been blown away. Seven houses owned by Fred Housman, including the one he lived in, on the Lockport road, were swept away completely. Five wrecked autos were found on that road. Between Hulman and Voorhees Streets, in South Eighth, there was complete devastation.
