WADENA, Minn. (AP) - The list of damage caused by last week's tornadoes in Minnesota continued to grow Monday.

The Freeborn County American Red Cross chapter released a new damage assessment and increased the number of damaged structures from 60 to 200. Officials say more than 200 homes in the Wadena area were also damaged by the tornadoes that had estimated wind speeds of between 166 mph and 200 mph.

The series of storms that hit the state Thursday killed three people and injured dozens more. Killed were 67-year-old Katherine Woodside of rural Albert Lea, 79-year-old Margie Schulke of Almor and 58-year-old Wes Michaels of Mentor.

Freeborn County Administrator John Kluever tells the Albert Lea Tribune that Federal Emergency Management Agency officials are expected to visit Tuesday.
