tornado weeee

O no, Indians, religious freedom and now tornados?? What’s next — witches?!?!

New England has been hit by its first ever tornado! Thank GOD no one was hurt, but it did kill one unlucky Indian who was smushed dead by a tree that fell over. 

John Winthrop, governor of Massachusetts, described the event:

"There arose a sudden gust so violent for one-half hour as it blew down multitudes of trees. It lifted up their meeting house at Newbury, the people being in it. It darkened the air with dust, yet through God’s great mercy it did no hurt, but only killed one Indian with the fall of a tree.”

Even Mother Nature hates the Indians!!

Whatevs!
