Episode Narrative An area of surface low pressure near Bismarck (ND) on the morning of the 11th moved to near Grand Forks (ND) by early afternoon, then moved to near Winnipeg in the evening. As it did so, a warm front lifted north ahead of the low and a cold front trailed behind the low. Thunderstorms formed along both boundaries.
Event Narrative This tornado tracked to the north-northeast for about 16 miles and lifted about 3 miles south-southwest of Lengby, or near Sugar Bowl Lake. Numerous trees and power poles were snapped along the path. Farm sheds were blown down and hay wagons flipped. The damage path was around 250 yards wide where it crossed county road 122 about 2 miles east of Beaulieu. Peak winds were estimated at 115 mph.
