There is video of Monday afternoon's tornado that struck western Minnesota. It's been classified as an EF-0 storm, which means its winds were estimated at 65-85 mph.

No one was injured in the Monday afternoon storm, but the tornado damaged three farm sites in Yellow Medicine County.

The National Weather Service in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, posted the video. It was provided by Lyon County Emergency Management officials.

WCCO reports the video was shot from the view of a moving car. It shows the funnel cloud moving over rural parts of northern Lyon County near St. Leo, Minnesota.

The same storm system left the nearby Dakotas and northwest Minnesota digging out from a major snow storm.
