A Park Rapids Ford car dealership showed photos of damage from the storms that passed through on their Facebook page. Parts of the roof had blown off the business. No one was hurt however, as the dealership was closed when the storm hit. Other businesses were also impacted by the EF-1 tornado in Park Rapids.
A church also posted some photos of damage sustained by the twister.

Another tornado that popped up in North Dakota, specifically touching down in Lidgerwood, brought on 70 mile per hour winds and was about 50 yards wide. This EF-0 tornado did not cause any injuries or deaths.
