Some Parts of Minnesota Cleaning Up after Storms

August 19, 2016 01:38 PM

People in the southern Minnesota city of Hollandale will be cleaning up some storm damage Friday.

High winds from storms knocked over large trees and tore roofs off of buildings Thursday.

Some people say they saw a tornado, but those reports haven't been confirmed by the National Weather Service.

In Glencoe, there were reports of trees and power lines down early Friday.

Much of the Twin Cities metro was under severe weather warnings overnight as a line of storms packing heavy rain and winds of around 50 miles per hour moved through.

Xcel Energy reported more than 5,000 customers were without power early Friday after the storms.

The storms also put on quite a show with constant lightning flashes in the clouds.


KSTP Meteorologist Jonathan Yuhas says showers and thunderstorms will be redeveloping during the daytime hours, so on-and-off rain should be expected Friday. High temperatures will be in the upper 70s, and skies will be mainly cloudy.
