Episode Narrative Windy conditions occurred in response to a deep low pressure center over Central South Dakota, combined with a large high pressure area over the Eastern Great Lakes. Some measured winds gusts of note include: 71 mph in Hanley Falls (Yellow Medicine County), 63 mph in Madison (Lac Qui Parle County), 59 mph in Canby (Yellow Medicine County), 60 mph in Appleton (Swift County), 68 mph four miles southwest of Belle Plaine (Scott County), 58 mph seven miles south of Starbuck (Pope County), 63 mph in Mankato (Blue Earth County), and 65 mph two miles WSW of New Prague (Le Sueur County). Scattered reports of trees, large branches, and power lines down throughout the region were reported. Additionally, strong winds ripped the roof off a repair shop in St. Clair. Shoreland Golf Course in St. Peter had so many downed trees they were forced to close for the day; the course superintendant said it was some of the worst damage he had ever seen. According to the Pope County Sheriff's office, an evergreen tree was knocked down over wires in Starbuck, a power pole was down on trees in Lowry, a shed was blown down in Cyrus, a power pole was toppled in Glenwood, and wires were down in Starbuck. According to the Mankato Free Press newspaper, several power lines blew over, and fallen trees blocked roads in the city of Mankato. Siding was ripped off a home in North Mankato. The State Patrol confirmed a recreational vehicle was overturned on Highway 22 about 5 miles north of Mankato. In New Prague, high winds toppled several trees and tree limbs, along with a power line, which affected customers northeast of the city.
