Four days later, clean up continues. Uprooted trees are still lying on all across lawns along Maple Lake. Across the lake, the twister tossed ten campers.
Many of them then hit by trees. Boats, lifts, and docks were damaged or destroyed, 30 boats just at the campground. Cleanup here could go into next summer.
“Not a very pleasant present. It's a lot of work. My son has been here. My grandson has been here. I got it pretty well cleaned up. A lot of neighbors pitched in and helped.”
One person died and three others were hurt in that tornado.
