Episode Narrative A mesoscale convective vortex (MCV) moved along a line from Cooperstown (ND) to Detroit Lakes (MN). Thunderstorms associated with it produced strong wind gusts and some large hail.
Event Narrative The roof of an open bay lumber storage building was uplifted and flipped eastward onto Junius Avenue. The section of roofing remained largely intact as it flipped and therefore it impacted and broke two adjacent power poles.
