Episode Narrative A surface boundary extended into southeast Minnesota from an area of low pressure over southwest Minnesota on the afternoon of August 13th. Favorable shear and instability existed along this boundary for supercell thunderstorms, which did develop in the early afternoon hours. These thunderstorms produced tornadoes, along with severe thunderstorm winds, large hail and flooding.
Event Narrative The tornado damage path began just south of State Highway 30 west of Hayfield. The tornado did move off to the northeast nearing State Highway 56 before taking a north northwest track until it lifted just south of County Road 6. Damage was noted to soybean and corn fields, numerous trees and limbs were snapped and uprooted, roofing damage occurred to a metal barn/shed, while an old barn was lifted off of its foundation for a complete loss. Also, a local residence had some small beams knocked out from underneath a porch on the front of the house.
