MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Gov. Mark Dayton and other officials will get a first-hand look at the wreckage left by a deadly tornado that struck Minneapolis.

Dayton will be joined by U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, Mayor R.T. Rybak and other city leaders on the tour Monday morning.

The tornado smashed through neighborhoods on Minneapolis’ north side Sunday, killing at least one person and damaging at least 100 homes. The storm also toppled tall trees into houses and downed power lines.

North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale had treated 30 people by Sunday evening, but none of the injuries was serious.

Six schools in north Minneapolis are closed Monday because of the tornado.
