Tornadoes in Hubbard County Cause Storm Damage
The National Weather Service-Grand Forks has determined that the storm damage that took place in Hubbard County last week was caused by two tornadoes.
At 7:30 p.m., on August 7th, storms caused property damage across southern Hubbard County. NWS found multiple weak funnels and brief EF-0 touchdown, which is described as weak tornadoes usually causing light damage to homes, about three miles away from Park Rapids.
About 30 minutes later, the storm began to move east towards Nevis and an EF-1 tornado was formed, the second-weakest classification of tornado, which can have winds between 86-110 miles per hour.
There were no injuries reported with either of the two tornadoes. The Hubbard County Sheriff’s Office and Emergency Management encourages residents to monitor severe weather alerts and updates.
