2000, April 23
On Easter Sunday, April 23, 2000 the village of Castor was all but destroyed by a late evening tornado which ripped through town leaving a path of destruction approximately 1/2 mile wide. Every local business had to be closed because of severe structural damage. Amazingly, no one was injured in the twister. Castor School suffered severe damage and students remain out of school pending major repairs. Subsequent rains continued to wreak havoc on an already damaged school complex causing further damage which at present (May 2000) is estimated @ 850,000 dollars. Residents of this small village must now undertake the slow process of reconstruction which will take months and even years to complete. Castor resident's had only recently celebrated the 100th anniversary of its establishment in 1900.
