Roses survive tornado at Ohio agricultural center

WOOSTER, Ohio (AP) - Roses at an agricultural center in Ohio still smell sweet - even after a tornado.

Ohio State University says nearly all the 1,500 heirloom roses in its agricultural center in Wooster survived after a tornado hit the area last month.

The rose collection's caretaker, Kelly King, says some of the flowers are even blooming. Elsewhere at the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center, the tornado knocked down trees and ripped the roof off the garden's pavilion.
