Roof blown off barn; trees and power lines down from severe storms in Minnesota

Hardest hit appears to be western Carver County and the south metro.

More than 10,000 Twin Cities homes are without power after heavy storms brought down power lines.

Xcel Energy's outage map lists around 10,600 homes as being without power as of 9:35 p.m., with St. Paul the worst hit.

The storms brought torrential downpours, small hail, frequent lightning and strong winds causing damage in and around the metro area Thursday evening.

Hardest hit appears to be areas of western Carver County, where a barn had its roof blown off near County Road 33. 

There are reports of trees down all the way from Glencoe to St. Paul.

Burnsville appears to have been hit hard as well, with reports of trees uprooted and power lines down along Hwy. 13. 

We'll update the story as damage reports filter in.
