Wadena marks one-year anniversary of tornadoby Tom Crann, Minnesota Public Radio
St. Paul, Minn. — It has been exactly a year since a tornado blew through Wadena, Minnesota, injuring more than 30 people and causing widespread destruction in the community of about 4,000.
That tornado hit as Wadena high school alumni gathered for an all-school reunion, which turned into a cleanup. This weekend, the community will gather again, this time to celebrate the year that's passed since the big storm.
Wadena's June Jubilee is the focus of our Friday Festival this week. MPR's Tom Crann talks with Erik Osberg, vice president of the Wadena Area Chamber of Commerce.
