Wadena-Deer Creek High School 'pretty much destroyed'
Safety continued to be the top priority here Friday as cleanup began in the aftermath of Thursday's tornadoes. Meanwhile, the principal said Wadena-Deer Creek High School is "pretty much destroyed."
Officials restricted access to the southwest section of the city, the hardest hit area where downed power lines, gas leaks and scattered debris remain a hazard.
"It's devastating," said Wayne Wolden, mayor of the town of 4,300. "It's like a war zone."
