MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Wednesday marks one year since a tornado tore through Chetek, Wisconsin, what was eventually determined to rate an EF-3 (the enhanced Fujita Scale).

On the ground for more than 80 miles, the storm left the longest path of damage in Wisconsin since modern records began.

One man died and dozens were hurt. It caused more than $10 million dollars in damage.

The worst of the storm hit about 120 miles northeast of the Twin Cities at the Prairie Lake Estates Mobile Home Park.
