“What we saw last night was people being very cooperative. We didn’t know how it would go with no lights. The bottom line is people behaved and it was a very quite night.” -- Minneapolis Police Chief Tim Dolan
“There were 40 people here at church when the tornado struck. Virtually every car that was parked here got their window smashed by falling bricks.” -- Minneapolis 5th Ward City Council Member Don Samuels
