NWS – At Least Four Tornadoes Confirmed During Friday’s Storms
UNDATED – Experts from the National Weather Service are still assessing the damage from last Friday’s storm, but they say the system spawned several tornadoes as it made it’s way across the state.
Two EF-1 tornadoes have been confirmed in Redwood County, one in Renville County, and one in Stearns County — near the I-94 and Highway 23 interchange.
The rest of the damage was done by a series of downbursts, and strong winds that reached 70-90 miles an hour at times.
The National Weather Service says the damage is so widespread across so many counties, stretching from South Dakota to Wisconsin, that it’s impossible to look at every bit of damage at every location.
