Episode Narrative Initially, severe thunderstorms developed in north central South Dakota, and moved east-southeast across eastern South Dakota, and produced large hail and damaging winds before 6 pm. These storms moved and formed a large line of intense thunderstorms across west-central Minnesota, which moved eastward rapidly across southern Minnesota. A few severe wind gusts occurred near Benson, but the strongest storms began across east-central Minnesota, and produced numerous wind damage reports across portions of the Twin Cities, near St. Cloud and portions of west-central Wisconsin before it decreased in intensity after midnight.
Event Narrative Several large trees were blown down in Ham Lake near Highway 65 and County Road 16.
