Tornado damage at least $166 million in MnplsMINNEAPOLIS (AP) — City officials say the damage toll from the tornado that devastated parts of Minneapolis is at least $166 million and is likely to rise.
Hundreds of residents were left homeless by Sunday's tornado that caused major damage to more than 600 buildings and left 35 homes uninhabitable. The storm killed one person, and a second man died while helping neighbors clean up. Officials say 48 people were injured.
Gov. Mark Dayton, Mayor R.T. Rybak, U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar and other officials toured the tornado damage Monday. Dayton said the state will offer the help north Minneapolis needs to recover, including a special legislative session to consider disaster aid.
