It was a father/daughter outing for Joe Wagner and Madelyn, 8. The two found the submerged walkway along the St. Croix River in downtown Stillwater an ideal escape from the heat in their hometown of Maplewood.

One person was killed and at least one other was injured Wednesday evening when a powerful tornado touched down in west-central Minnesota's Otter Tail County.

Several homes and farmsteads in a rural area were destroyed or severely damaged.

Two people were taken to a hospital with unspecified injuries, with one fatality reported, said Shannon Terry, spokeswoman for Otter Tail County Sheriff Barry Fitzgibbons. She did not have information on whether the person who died was one of those taken to a hospital.
