Cleanup After Minnesota’s Widespread Tornado Outbreak

Minnesota’s Tornado Outbreak

On June 17th, 2010, one of the worst tornado outbreaks in Minnesota’s history took place. Tornadoes touched down in northwestern and southern Minnesota, leaving Wadena and Albert Lea areas severely damaged.  Over 36 tornado reports were called in to the National Weather Service (NWS).  The previous state record for tornadoes is 27 and will hold out until the NWS has had a change to survey the damage.  Current estimations predict 16 tornadoes may have actually occurred.

Miraculously only 3 perished in the line of storms from Fargo, through Minneapolis-St. Paul, down to Albert Lea, but unfortunately the damage in aftermath of the storms is quite widespread.  Hardest hit is the town of Wadena, MN, where near 200 homes were obliterated in the storm.

If you suspect your home has sustained hail or storm damage, contact a qualified roofing contractor today!  A qualified roofer will asses and adequately document that damage exists and be your advocate throughout the entire insurance claim and repair process.
