Wisconsin marks 29th anniversary of devestating tornado

In June of 1984, a monster, F-5 tornado struck Barneveld, Wisconsin, population 580,  in the middle of the night, killing nine residents and injuring 200 others.

Like Moore, Oklahoma, the path of the tornado scraped away everything.

WGN’s Bob Jordan was there 29-years ago and witnessed the devastation. He recounts the time and explains how Barneveld can serve as a road map for Moore.
