A brief tornado touched down east of Minnesota Lake in southern Minnesota Friday afternoon.
Video of the tornado was captured by Jena Siegler and tweeted to the public by KYEC meteorologist Mark Tarello.
The National Weather Service Twins Cities caught wind (sorry) of the twister and noted that it was a land spout tornado, which are known to move very slowly.
Unlike traditional tornadoes, land spouts have a circulation that starts from the ground and aren't known for causing a lot of damage.
