We made it through another week, and this morning’s meeting really did feel like a Friday. But that doesn’t mean we aren’t covering a wide range of topics today.
- We discussed the situation at the Leif Ericson camp and plan to explore a couple more angles of this story. The camp is reviewing its safety procedures after the incident.
- While we didn’t see the strong storms expected yesterday, Minnesotans took a pounding from multiple tornadoes Thursday (possibly a record, according to WCCO). Storms moved through many parts of Minnesota in the afternoon, toppling power poles, destroying structures and leaving behind a mess of debris. Our Sports Director Jay Elsen found himself face-to-face with one tornado outside of Albert Lea.
- As Minnesota cleans up after their storms, the town of Dupree can relate — they’re picking up the pieces after storms on Wednesday. We’re back in Dupree and will have more tonight on KELOLAND News.
- We’re also checking with the Empire Mall to see what procedures they have in place for severe weather. Storms can hit at any time, and we’re wondering how a business keeps their customers safe.
