Scary video of tornadoes ripping through Minnesota Sunday

Publish date:

The intense storms that rolled through the central and northeastern parts of Minnesota Sunday night left a path of damage that included multiple reports of tornadoes, straightline winds and hail the size of tennis balls, baseballs, softballs and grapefruit.

A few people captured video of tornadoes ripping through open fields near Floodwood and Grand Rapids. FYI – there are a few curse words in the first video at the top of the page.

It's hard to tell from the videos, but the National Weather Service reported a "large and extremely dangerous tornado" to the west of Swan River, which is near Grand Rapids. According to the Grand Forks Herald, that same storm produced a tornado 9 miles north of Floodwood.

Here's more video of the tornado, plus other images of what happened last night.
