Man returns home to find ‘odds’ came true

Gary Bennett, who lives off Highway 7 in Silver Lake, was on the receiving end of damages to his property due to a tornado that touched down Sunday, July 28.
Bennett said he estimates tree removal alone will cost anywhere from $3,000 to $4,000, and has yet to determine what he’ll be paying out of pocket for other damages.
He was in Brainerd visiting with friends over the weekend when the tornado hit. Bennett was on his way back to his house in Silver Lake when he got a phone call from a concerned friend asking if his property was impacted by the storm.
“What are the odds?” Bennett thought.
