Posted by wlpo on March 13, 2014

Do you remember where you were and what you were doing when the 2004 tornado ripped through Utica?

The tenth anniversary is coming up on April 20th and according to the NewsTribune, a remembrance ceremony will be held on Monday, April 21st.  The trustees decided against having the ceremony on the 20th because its Easter.

Eight people were killed in the Utica tornado as they sought shelter at the Milestone Tap.  A new sculpture donated by Steve Seaborn of Peru will be part of this year’s tornado remembrance.

The 10th anniversary ceremony will start a little after six in the evening or the approximate time the tornado rolled through Utica.
