Episode Narrative Wednesday afternoon, August 1st, thunderstorms developed near Canby, Minnesota, and moved to the east-southeast and intensified. Large hail was the first to develop early in the storms history, then it began to bow out and move to the east-southeast across portions of west-central and southwest Minnesota, where several wind gusts over 60 mph occurred. The highest wind gust occurred at 551 PM CST at the Redwood Falls regional airport where a measured 79 mph wind gust occurred. Eventually, small segments of this bow echo moved to the east and caused damage near Northfield.
