Episode Narrative Several short-lived supercell thunderstorms moved across portions of west-central and into east-central Minnesota during the mid to late evening hours of Saturday, August 7th. One of the severe thunderstorms produced a tornado near Evansville, Minnesota, with reports of straight-line wind damage as far east as the northern portions of the Twin Cities. These storms moved into west-central Wisconsin and produced more damaging winds.
Event Narrative A National Weather Service Storm Damage Survey from the Grand Forks, North Dakota Office determined that an EF-1 tornado touched down about one mile north of Wendell in Grant County, and had an intermittent track east-southeast through Grant County. It then moved east across northwestern Douglas County to the south side of Evansville, before lifting. Total path length from Grant County into Douglas County was about 21 miles. Damage was confined to large trees, but several power poles were blown down in Evansville, causing a city wide power outage.
