Thursday's storm has caused outages throughout the region that are limiting work for some locations.

We are part of The Trust Project.

WADENA — The following are weather related cancellations, closures or postponements in our area for Friday, May 13.

  • The Bertha Clinic will be closed today due to power outages.
  • The Wadena-Deer Creek, Verndale and Bertha-Hewitt schools are closed today due to power outages and damage in the area.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
