SIKESTON -- A lot of people remember seeing the tornado that wreaked havoc in Sikeston on May 15, 1986. Some even have pictures.

"I've actually got a half a dozen photos," said Ed Fox, 58, of Sikeston. "I've got it as it is progressing into the full-blown tornado."

Fox said with the 25th anniversary coming up, it seemed like a good time to dig out those old pictures.

He recalls clearly the events of that day.
