Severe Storms Thursday Night 24 Aug 12

Strong winds downed trees and power lines across parts of south-central Minnesota Thursday night, and caused damage to at least one home in McLeod County. The storm brought hail and straight-line winds to many parts of the state, and there was some cloud circulation in Carver County at just before 9pm, although there were no reports of a tornado. Authorities say that a roof was partially torn from a house near Glencoe, and there were also downed trees and power lines in the southern part of McLeod County. Some locations received upwards of 4-inches of rain as well. There were no reports of injuries, and the storm dissipated as it moved toward the Twin Cities metro area.
