Author Sue Moline lived through a nightmare that belongs in a movie—and the book she wrote about it is going to be turned into one.
August 6, 1969 became the fifth deadliest day in Minnesota tornado history, killing eleven people on the shores of Roosevelt Lake at 4:55 p.m. in the tiny town of Outing, Minnesota. There had been no warning.
The Lake Turned Upside Down is by Sue Moline, one of the survivors of that deadly day. She compiled news reports, records, and over one hundred testimonies from survivors, first responders, and eyewitnesses.
The National Weather Service called it the Northwoods Tornado Outbreak. The author calls it a miracle that anyone lived.
