FARGO — It may have happened more than 60 years ago, but the 1957 tornado that obliterated a northside neighborhood here and killed 12 people is still ingrained in the minds of many residents. Now a book has been published about the fateful storm, those affected by it and how the community rebuilt once the tornado returned to the sky. "1957 Fargo Tornado" was released last month, and authors Trista Raezer-Stursa, Lisa Eggebraaten and John Hallberg will discuss the book in coming weeks. (A fourth author, Jylisa Doney, has moved from the area.)

FARGO — The minute Arika Elliott walked into the sweet little A-frame house on 10th Street near downtown Fargo, she knew she wanted to live there.
