Episode Narrative Bands of thunderstorms developed during the evening of Sunday, May 27th, across portions of southwest, and east central Minnesota. The storms that moved from east central Minnesota, northeast into west central Wisconsin, became severe, along with several rounds of the storms in Polk County. This caused flash flooding in the county, along with rainfall amounts as high as 2 to 4 inches in less than 3 hours. In addition, two separate storms caused a few trees to blow down near Frederic and Clam Falls. One brief weak tornado touched down northeast of Luck.
Event Narrative A tornado occasionally touched down during a two minute span filmed by a storm chaser. It appeared to be rather weak. The tornado touched down in a marsh area and caused no damage.
