the injured More than a dozen North lowans were treated for in juries received in the twister An Osage couple Mr and Mrs Clifford Canny was hurt the worst Mrs Canny was reported in poor condition at anOsage hospital with undetermined in juries and her husband was in good condition suffering from a broken pelvis The Cannys and their three children were in their farm home miles northeast of Osage
