UPDATED: 'It's like a war zone': Public urged to stay out of heavily hit areas of Wadena
WADENA, Minn. - As cleanup continues in the aftermath of Thursday's tornado, officials urge the public to stay out of the most heavily hit areas of town.
Access to the southwest area of this city of about 4,300 is limited today to emergency personnel because of the concerns about downed power lines, gas leaks and scattered debris, officials said this morning.
"It's devastating," Mayor Wayne Wolden said. "It's like a war zone."
