From tornado to tsunami warning

Email

Most Wadena area residents can remember where they were when they heard of the 9.0 earthquake and tsunami in Japan - somewhere safe in Minnesota.

Sara (Hacking) Backstrom, Vicki Pearson and Daryl Pearson were in Hawaii in the path of the waves.

Backstrom, reporter at the Pioneer Journal from 2006-2010, experienced the Wadena EF4 tornado shortly before getting married and moving to balmy Honolulu.

Now she has lived through a tsunami warning too.
