Multiple tornado warnings were issued in northern Minnesota on Wednesday night as powerful storms exploded around 9 p.m. and made their way across the state.
Spotters reported seeing a funnel cloud and later a tornado on the ground near Ponemah, a small town tucked between Upper Red Lake and Lower Red Lake – about 45 miles north of Bemidji.
Michele French caught the tornado on video and gave BMTN permission to share it.
The stovepipe tornado appeared to stay on the ground for a short time before lifting back into the clouds.
Red Lake Nation News says there haven't been any reports of damage or injuries.
