10 years later, Ladysmith residents recall tornado


It's been 10 years since a powerful F3 tornado swept through Ladysmith, causing $20 million in damage. Residents remember how the community came together to clean up.

Former police Chief Norm Rozak remembers organizing a massive relief effort, and recalls the volunteers who came to help.

Meanwhile, a mural made for the town of Ladysmith is finished, and stands as a symbol of how far the community has come since the storm. Many buildings in town are either new or remodeled -- so the city has a new look.

No one was killed in the storm, but 27 people were injured.
