Mark Jaskowiak received a phone call Friday morning he wasn't expecting.

When Jaskowiak, the general manager of Pro Ag Farmers Co-op, answered his phone around 11 a.m. August 6, he found out that one of the grain bins at the Pro-Ag elevator in Garfield had a kink in it and was starting to tip over.


A farmer who was at the elevator noticed it and notified the elevator employees.

Although the buckling of a grain bin is rare, Jaskowiak said he has seen it before.
