This was the view along U.S. Highway 56 looking west toward Hillsboro around 6 p.m. Sunday. At about that time the community of Lehigh was under a severe thunderstorm warning. Fortunately, outdoor commencement ceremonies for Tabor College and Hillsboro had
been completed in Joel H. Wiens Stadium. Marion County received significant rainfall across much of the county, but mostly escaped significant hail and tornado damage suffered elsewhere in the state.
