Severe thunderstorms rumbled through western and southern Minnesota on Friday, leaving behind reports of wind damage and some flash flooding.

Severe storms struck communities from Brookings, South Dakota through the south central Minnesota town of Sleepy Eye and other communities to the south.

The National Weather Service reports wind gusts roared to nearly 80 mph in the southwest part of the state, knocking down trees and large branches in Minneota and Marshall.

The weather service says strong winds were also responsible for toppling a semi truck on I-90 near Fairmont and damaging a turkey barn south of Springfield.

Where the wind wasn't a problem the torrential rains were. Flash flooding was reported in a few southern Minnesota communities including Sleepy Eye.

Here is a quick look at some of Friday's damage.
