Lincoln Windows thrown by tornado

Merrill, Wis.-based Lincoln Windows continues to struggle following a destructive tornado that hit the company's corporate offices and final assembly plant on April 10. 

The Sunday evening twister, luckily, caused only one minor injury, but it left the operation in shambles, as photos and Youtube videos attest.

In an April 12 letter to customers, sales manager Steve Kahle said the company was in the process of transferring its computer system to its Timeline facility. "We greatly appreciate your patience, understanding and loyalty as we get our operations up and running again," he wrote.
