July 19th, 1956 Drayton Leader Black thunderclouds overhung Drayton Wednesday afternoon and about 3 p.m. the funnel of a tornado was seen across the Red River in Minnesota territory. When first sighted the funnel hung straight down but as interested and If 1900 July 14--The Red River fleet [government boats] was upriver at Grandin. It had rained on June 30 and July 4 and 5. August 22 (or 15)--The Grand Forks and four barges went to Drayton to load wheat at the river elevator. September 21--The Grand Forks came into its home port with a load of wheat from Drayton, and the Fram brought in wheat from Acton. Captain Hayes and the government steamer came down from Belmont, where he and a crew had been clearing boulders from the river bed. Recent rains had made excellent navigation on the Red. October 4--The Grand Forks came into port with 18,000 bushels of wheat from downriver, and the Fram arrived with about 12,000 bushels from upriver. The government dredge boat was working twenty-five miles north of Grand Forks. The government steamer was working both north and south of Grand Forks, clearing boulders and snags. The Red was at a "good height" and the steamers were very busy. October 6--Late in the evening a small leak was discovered in the Fram. However, the leak got worse and the pumps could not handle the water. In a few minutes the Fram sank. Guy ropes were attached to keep the boat from sliding toward the middle of the river and capsizing. The leak was suspected of being caused by striking a boulder. The Fram would be re-floated as soon as possible. [The sinking appears to have been in or near Grand Forks.] October 10--The Red was up six-and-half feet since June and was at its highest since 1898. October 14--The Grand Forks pulled into Drayton for a load of wheat. November 4--Joseph Fortin, who had apprehensive spectators watched it lifted and then disappeared into the storm clouds above. Tornado warnings were broadcast for this area but up until press time no reports of tornados had come in. Lightning which struck during a thunderstorm Saturday morning damaged a tree in front of the Christ Helm residence on Main Street. The lightning flash also caused two tubes in the helm radio to blow out but no other damage within the house was discovered according to Mr. Helm. Rain which fell during the storm totaled .2 inch.

Part 48 By K. C. Gardner, Jr. worked on the Great Northern [Red River Transportation Co.] boats on the Red for twenty-five years, was accidentally drowned in north Grand Forks about 2 a.m. November 10--The Fram made its first trip downriver since being sunk. November 17--The Red River boats were all laid up for the winter. The Fram was trapped in the ice fifteen miles below Grand Forks. It was getting the reputation for being an unlucky boat: when the owners tried to drag it across the snow from Thief River Falls, the snow gave out and the boat had to be shipped by flatcar on the railroad; after the steamer sank, it had been raised several times, but each time it sank again before it could be secured the owners finally had to beach it before it could be repaired. November 21 --The Red was higher than in any previous fall since 1881.
