Tornadoes Touch Down In Beltrami County
Despite funnel clouds and three confirmed tornado touchdowns, most of Beltrami County escaped severe damage from Wednesday night’s storms.
According to the National Weather Service, which spent the day assessing the damage, the winds from all three tornadoes ranged from 80 to 100 miles per hour. The maximum width of the storm path of the tornadoes ranged from 250 to 400 yards wide.
The damage in those areas included tree limbs that snapped and large poplar and pine trees that were uprooted. Beltrami County Emergency Management Director Chris Muller says that no injuries were reported and that all the areas impacted by the storms were rural, with no significant property damage reported.
