Downburst of wind wrecks hog building near Waldorf

WALDORF, Minn. (KTTC-DT) -- An apparent downburst of wind destroyed a hog barn at the New Fashion Pork complex on 60th Street near Waldorf about 6 p.m. on Tuesday.

A Waseca County sheriff's deputy who was at the scene on Wednesday morning told KTTC NewsCenter the violent wind had picked up the building and hurled it against a nearby structure.  The deputy said no hogs were killed or hurt.

New Fashion Pork managers were on the scene Wednesday, and employees were using heavy equipment to clear away the damage.
