Months after a devastating tornado struck Wadena, a benefit will be held this weekend to help the still-recovering Minnesota town.
One week after a powerful twister pounded Wadena, Minnesota, Governor Pawlenty is revisiting the town and the mayor is holding a State of the City press conference to talk about recovery efforts.
Tornado cleanup in Wadena has been going well. So well, fact, that a major volunteer effort for Saturday has been cancelled.
Gov. Tim Pawlenty has declared a state of emergency in seven counties that were hit hard by a string of tornadoes last week.
The death toll from Thursday’s storms in Minnesota now stands at three.
