DELMONT, S.D. (AP) - A full day of activities is planned in Delmont on Tuesday to observe the one-year anniversary of the tornado that damaged the city.

On the morning of May 10, 2015, an EF-2 tornado struck the city and damaged or destroyed many buildings including a church and a fire hall. No one was killed, but there were nine injuries.

Mayor Mae Gunnare says it has been a long year of rebuilding. She says the 2015 tornado changed the community but did not destroy it, and it’s now part of Delmont’s history.

Tuesday’s observance begins with a moment of silence and a ringing of church bells at 10:45 a.m., which is when the tornado struck. Other events include an open house with slides and videos, children’s activities, tours and a dinner.
