Episode Narrative A complex of thunderstorms that developed across the Dakotas, moved eastward into west central Minnesota during the early morning hours of August 19th. A few severe hail stones were noted, but nothing widespread. Most of the activity decreased below severe limits by the daybreak. However, this line of storms became oriented along a frontal boundary and caused torrential downpours for several hours. Additional thunderstorms during the morning and early afternoon hours provided for an additional one to two inches.
Event Narrative The local law enforcement officials reported dime to quarter size hail which covered the ground. The next morning the local emergency manager reported that the hail remained in the city of Louisburg, Minnesota with drifts still around two feet. Some residences of Lac Qui Parle County reported that the hail lasted for one half hour with drifts of two to three feet. Minor damage occurred to crops and local gardens.
