    This exhibit includes extraordinary footage and unforgettable stories of strength and survival. Minnesotans are no strangers to man-made or natural disasters. They have faced devastating swarms of grasshoppers, tornadoes, fires and floods. Using photos, text and film, “Minnesota Disasters” explores the preparation, reaction and aftermath to catastrophe in our state. Intertwined with details of those calamities are the incredible stories of human vulnerability and resilience.
    The Minnesota Historical Society’s exhibit includes two area disasters, the Grasshopper Plague of 1873 and the 1886 cyclone. In addition photographs and items from the Museum’s collection highlight snowstorms, floods and lightning strikes. The highlight of our local collection is photographs from the infamous cyclone that wiped out Sauk Rapids making St. Cloud the center of commerce in Central Minnesota.
    The Minnesota Historical Society Traveling Exhibits Program has been made possible by the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the vote of Minnesotans on November 4, 2008.
