WADENA, Minn. (AP) - Storm cleanup is winding down in Wadena, nearly two weeks after a tornado struck the northwestern Minnesota city.

Cleanup has gotten to the point where officials in Wadena plan to close down the city's volunteer center.

Starting at 5 p.m. Wednesday, the city will no longer accept walk-in volunteers to help with cleanup from the twister that struck the town June 17.

City spokeswoman Judy Jacobs says volunteers have already finished much of the general cleanup work.

Jacobs says Wadena averaged close to 400 volunteers per day. She says organized groups of volunteers are still being accepted on a limited basis, but those groups must provide their own supervision.
