In May of 2011, the weather turned furious over the Twin Cities with at least three tornado touchdowns. The hardest-hit area was the Jordan neighborhood in Minneapolis, and north Minneapolis is still recovering. Major storm events such as tornadoes and downpours are now more likely and extreme because of climate change, which can result in larger impacts on our communities, our homes and our health.
The Northside Preparedness Jam is sponsored by the City of Minneapolis, the Neighborhood Hub and Appetite for Change.
