Episode Narrative A line of severe thunderstorms developed east of Alexandria, Minnesota, and quickly moved east-northeast across central Minnesota and produced measured winds in excess of 80 mph at times.
Several thousand trees were either uprooted or blown down from eastern Stearns County, eastward across western Benton, and southern Morrison County. There was a semi blown over near Rice, a large communication tower blown down, and several sheds and barns damaged or destroyed.
Event Narrative Tornado touched down just southeast of the intersection of Highways 60 and 169. It hit a field and lofted numerous corn stalks. After dissipating, the parent circulation moved to the vicinity of the intersection of County Road 90 and State Highway 22, but no additional touchdowns were noted. Tornado was photographed by spotter.
