Utica Tornado Anniversary

Posted by wlpo on April 20, 2010

When the clock hits 6:10 tonight, it’ll be exactly six years since a tornado ripped into Utica, killing eight people at the Milestone Tap.

The F3 tornado first did damage in Granville before making its way thru Utica.  The tornado brought down the Milestone Tap killing Wayne Ball, Michael Miller Jr., Helen Mahnke, Carol Schulties, Larry Ventrice, Marian Ventrice, Jay Vezain, and Beverly Wood.

Several weeks after the storm, the village clerk’s son was stillborn and became recognized as the ninth victim of the tornado.
