Episode Narrative The early evening of Sunday July 10th, a complex of thunderstorms developed across southeast North Dakota, and northeast South Dakota, and moved southeast across Minnesota. Ample instability and wind shear allowed for several bow echoes to form along the leading edge of a strong thunderstorm complex.
Several wind sensors across west central Minnesota recorded measured wind speeds in excess of 70 mph as these storms moved rapidly southeast. There was a brief tornado that touched down north of Atwater, Minnesota. However, most of the storm damage was with straight-line winds, some of which caused widespread damage near Sauk Centre.
The worst damage, in terms of hundreds of trees uprooted or down power lines was across Douglas, Pope and Stearns Counties of west central and central Minnesota early in the storm's path.
