Episode Narrative During the late afternoon of Tuesday, May 10th, a line of severe thunderstorms developed along the leading edge of a strong dry line moving across southern and central Minnesota. Once the thunderstorms developed, several became super cells and produced large hail across portions of the Twin Cities metro area, then northwest along the Mississippi River valley, and north to Mille Lacs Lake. Numerous reports of golf ball size hail occurred with these storms, along with an isolated tornado near St. Michael, Minnesota.
Event Narrative One home lost part of its roof, and others lost shingles. Several homes had windows blown in. Several dozen trees and a number of power poles were broken or knocked down. Siding and soffits were ripped off a few houses. Numerous backyard fences were blown over. A pole barn was lifted up about three feet before being set back down. The tornado was photographed and videotaped by several people. The condensation funnel was not fully extended, and the debris cloud never extended as high as the condensation funnel. The tornado was a marginal EF-1, with winds near 90 mph.
