Some severe weather rumbled through parts of southern Minnesota Sunday night, leaving more standing water in some areas. The National Weather Service reported flash flooding in Dakota, Le Sueur, Rice and Scott counties following very heavy rains overnight, with some golf ball-sized hail spotted as well. Communities to the west and further south were also hit with strong wind and hail, damaging homes and cutting power in some areas, and a tornado touchdown was confirmed in Traverse County, although no major damage was reported. Forecasters issued severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings for many locations as winds exceeded 75mph at times. The power reportedly went out in the cities of Kandiyohi and Atwater, and the storm downed large trees and utility poles in many western counties and destroyed a barn and tore the roof from a home in Grove City. There is more flooding reported near Cannon Falls again as well.
