A large area of Minden remains without power today and likely will be through the weekend into Monday.
Mayor Terry Gardner said the National weather service has confirmed the storm was a tornado.
He asked that residents stay home if at all possible. If not, avoid the following streets:
Homer Road from the library to Minden Family Dental
The downtown boulevard, which is closed
Lewisville Road at Tillman
Gardner said another crew has come in to aid the city in removing downed trees and power lines.
