September tornadoes, damage reported in southern Minnesota

Call it a good forecast by the National Weather Service and local meteorologists. Severe thunderstorms ripped across southern Minnesota as advertised Thursday evening.

The nasty squall line produced numerous damage reports as it tore through.

Preliminary reports indicate several tornadoes skipped across southern Minnesota. Damage is reported in Northfield, Waseca, Faribault, Waterville, and Cannon Falls.


Several inches of rain fell across the Twin Cities Thursday. Numerous flood reports rolled into the Huttner Weather lab this evening.

Thankfully our weather quiets down as we head toward the weekend.
