Wadena devastated by 'tornado'

Email

It was supposed to be a celebratory day in Wadena. Instead, a

tornado tore large sections of the city down.

The storm disrupted the city's parade today, and came through town as

hundreds of visitors arrive for an all-school reunion.

At 5:10 p.m., a storm caused "extreme damage" in the city, according

to Mayor Wayne Wolden. Several buildings are damaged or destroyed,

including Wadena-Deer Creek High School and the Wadena Area Community
