Two Rounds Of Storms Recap 22 Jun 13

Severe storms rolled across Minnesota early Friday morning and again Friday evening, bringing strong winds, heavy rains, and even some hail. There was an 85 mile-per-hour wind gust reported in Benson in western Minnesota early Friday. There were also numerous reports of branches down and trees up-rooted, as well as downed power lines from both storms, with hundreds of thousands of homes losing power. A tornado was spotted near Tracy at around 5:15 Friday evening, and that storm dumped a couple inches of rain on many locations as it moved across the area. As of Saturday morning, more than a million Minnesotans were reportedly without electrical service.
