Tornado warnings expire after severe weather moves through central MN


A tornado warning was in effect for parts of central Minnesota after radar indicated a possible tornado.

Part of Stearns and Todd counties were under tornado warnings until 5:15 p.m. Wednesday when a "tornado-producing storm" was located over West Union, in nearby Douglas County, around 3:29 p.m.


Radar indicated rotation and a tornado, the weather alert said. And wind damage, one-inch hail and heavy rain were also reported with the storm system, according to the National Weather Service.

There's no word on if there was any major damage in the area.

Storms, including some strong to severe, are possible throughout Wednesday night, the National Weather Service says. For the latest severe weather alerts, click here.
