There were no reports of injuries when the severe weather swept through Redwood, Brown and Watonwan counties Thursday evening.

Watonwan County sheriff's officials say a large turkey barn near St. James sustained substantial damage.

A deluge of rain flooded streets in Redwood Falls and Morgan. Baseball-sized hail fell in parts of the region.

The National Weather Service predicts more storms, some possibly severe, may arrive Friday afternoon in southern Minnesota.
