From the archives: Deadly tornado leveled Barneveld in 1984

On June 8, 1984, an F5 tornado ripped through the Iowa County village of Barneveld, killing nine people and destroying most of the small community 25 miles west of Madison.

The powerful tornado had winds over 300 mph, and it measured an estimated 400 yards across as it plowed through Barneveld and neighboring Black Earth. The 13-mile path of destruction included every tree and 90 percent of the buildings in Barneveld. Here's a look back at the devastation.
