|Episode Narrative||The morning of Wednesday July 14th had a complex of severe thunderstorms moving across eastern North Dakota, into portions of west-central and central Minnesota. Embedded bow echoes caused considerable damage across northern Douglas County before 8 am. This complex moved eastward during the morning, and intensified across portions of east-central Minnesota and west-central Wisconsin. Several waves of thunderstorms developed across west-central Wisconsin and began to reform westward into Minnesota by the early afternoon. Several supercells developed across the southern Twin Cities metro area and became tornadic near Northfield, Minnesota. These storms quickly moved into west-central Wisconsin where more tornadoes developed.|
|Event Narrative||A National Weather Service Storm Survey Team determined that an EF-1 tornado, with maximum winds of 95 mph, occurred along a broken 1.7 mile path length northwest of Northfield, Minnesota.
The tornado first touched down approximately 3.9 miles northeast of Northfield, near the Junction of 313th Street and County Road 47 where a metal shed was blown off its foundation and flew over a farm home and landed approximately 100 yards away. There was some damage to the farm home, but most of the damage was associated with debris from uprooted trees and the metal shed.
The tornado lifted approximately one-quarter of a mile east of the farm home and blew over a semi-truck on County Road 47.
The tornado then touched down approximately three-quarters of a mile east of County Road 47 in a corn field, and tracked approximately one half mile east before lifting near the intersection of County Road 59, and Cannon River Road. The tornado caused damage to a farm home along this track, and blew a storage shed approximately 200 yards into the farmer's corn field. Other damage with the tornado track was associated with damaged corn fields and a small camper that was destroyed.
