The National Weather Service says at least one tornado moved through west-central and southern Minnesota, but there are no reports of injuries or widespread damage.

The tornado was reported near Garden City about 5 p.m. Tuesday.


The weather service issued a tornado warning for communities south of Mankato and Owatonna. Large tree branches were down near Pemberton and a large tree blocked a road in New Richland.

The storm system produced golf ball-sized hail in Waldorf in Waseca County and quarter-sized hail in Lake Crystal in Blue Earth County.
