The tornadoes that tore through the Twin Cities suburban area on May 6, 1965 caused more dollar cost damage than any single weather event in Minnesota history.

Lives were torn apart and residents were staggered by the amount of destruction, but the area did recover as the residents remained resilient against adversity.

The atmospheric conditions that produced such a large number of destructive tornadoes over such a long time span and over a relatively small area are still being researched to this day.
