Episode Narrative Despite the fact there was very little surface forcing, severe thunderstorms fired up across northeast North Dakota and northwest Minnesota on the evening of the 24th. A weak surface trough did extend from near Bismarck (ND) into the extreme northwest corner of Minnesota. Most of the thunderstorm activity was diurnally driven and associated with good upper jet support. Therefore most of the thunderstorms flared up in the very late afternoon and diminished around sunset.
Event Narrative Very strong wind and wind driven hail completely stripped fields of their crops for about a one mile wide by six mile long path through northeast King and northwest Brandsvold townships. Numerous large tree limbs were torn down for an additional half mile wide on either side of the main damage corridor. At one farmstead, a chicken coop was overturned and roofing materials were ripped loose from the house and barn.
