High Winds, Large Hail Pound Parts Of Minnesota


MGN Online

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Heavy rain, powerful winds and large hail pounded parts of Minnesota as a severe thunderstorm rolled through.
 
The National Weather Service had reports of 2-inch hail south of Cambridge and 1-inch hail and heavy rain southeast of Monticello Thursday. The weather service says strong winds in Hutchinson toppled a tree which landed on a vehicle and caused minor injuries to one person.
 
The high wind also caused trees to fall in northern Chisago County with one hitting a house southwest of Rush City.
 
The Star Tribune says power failures mounted in the Twin Cities as the storm blew through. Xcel Energy reported 20,000 outages at one point.
