My family had just moved to Eau Claire in May 1958. After the tornado, I was deathly afraid anytime there was a tornado warning . I remember driving with my family to see the destruction in the Colfax area and Irving Park.

$300,000 of aid in 1958 is worth about $2,750,000 today.

I moved here in 1975 I have heard about this event but have never had such a good recap. Thanks

I was 6 years old when the Colfax tornado happened. The house that we were going to move into was leveled. Arthur Quevillon was a relative of mine who died that day.

Thanks so much for this presentation. I lived in Mondovi and I remember my dad driving us to see the devastation. One of the things I remember seeing is seeing a piece of straw driven through a tree trunk!
