Wednesday Evening Storms 03 May 12

A Tornado Warning was issued for much of the local area Wednesday evening as severe thunderstorms again rolled through southern Minnesota. Heavy rain was reported across the KNUJ listening area, and reports of hail anywhere from 1-inch in diameter to as large as baseball-sized came in from Searles, Hanska, Lake Crystal, Waterville, Waseca and Mankato. Trained weather spotters did report a rotating wall cloud south of Mankato but there were no reports of funnel clouds or touchdowns.
