Wadena MN Tornado Pics?

Tornadoes, thunderstorms and hail ripped across Wadena Minnesota this afternoon and evening, causing widespread damage to homes and trees. Strong to severe storms are firing along a cold front moving across the region this evening.
The tornado destroyed a gas station and four vehicles. Three people were hurt when the tornado hit about 6:30 p.m.
Were any deaths caused by the tornado in Wadena MN? Is there a website that has pictures of the damage this tornado made?

About 20 people were injured and blocked of homes were damaged when the tornado touched down early Thursday evening in Wadena MN.
Wadena is a town of about 4,000 about 20 miles northeast of Almora. The two towns are about 70 miles southeast of Fargo, N.D.
Lori Wolden, wife of Wadena mayor Wayne Wolden, says "there's houses half-gone" and "there's no trees" in the southwest part of town.

Two people died from Thursday's storms. A man was killed when a twister hit the Cenex station in Mentor, in northwest Minnesota and earlier, authorities in Otter Tail County reported a woman killed by a tornado in Almora.

Down the road in Parkers Prairie Mayor Don Zuehlke returned to his farm just outside of town to find the place in ruins. Zuehlke reports that three 300 foot turkey barns were destroyed, an antique barn flattened.
