Lightning, Hail, and Storm Damage Reported in North Central MN on Wednesday

Severe weather hit the Lakeland viewing area yesterday, and Lakeland News received several reports of damage throughout the area, along with reports of tornadoes.

That included video of heavy hail near Guthrie that all of a sudden featured a big and very close lightning strike. (Thank you to Traci Knowlton for that footage.) We also received video from near Crosby, where a storm chaser documented a tornado on the ground between Crosby and Aitkin this evening.

The Crosslake area was also hit hard, where Crow Wing Power reported many without power that evening. Hailstones up to 2.5″ in size were reported in Backus.
