It was Russian, not detention, that sent 11 students to the principal's office at Ventura's Lincoln Elementary School on Friday.

One dreams he is being attacked by a swarm of vicious tornadoes. Another's nightmares feature a giant who shakes his tiny home. "Last night I dreamed I was fighting Andrew," said fifth-grader Marc Shwani, 11. "He looked like a big bunch of clouds with eyes." But these dreams and other repercussions--the fears of making new friends after so many people have left the area, the trepidation whenever the wind blows--are not the worst juvenile fallout from Hurricane Andrew.
