History

On the evening of June 13, 1998, a tornado damaged much of the downtown, which led to the demolition of the City Hall building. No casualties were reported. The downtown area received little warning as the tornado struck less than 1 minute after the tornado siren began to sound. The siren, located atop the city hall was cut off when it was tossed off the roof of the city hall by the tornado.[citation needed]
