Storm Downs Trees and Power Lines 24 Aug 12

Strong winds downed trees and power lines and caused damage to at least one roof as storms swept through the area Thursday night.

Officials with the National Weather Service say the storm brought hail and straight-line winds. Radar indicated circulation in Carver County shortly before 9 p.m., but there are no reports of a tornado.

There was a report that a roof was partially torn from a house near Glencoe. A McLeod County sheriff’s dispatcher says there are also downed trees and power lines in the southern part of McLeod county.

Rainfall ranging from 2 to 4 inches prompted a small stream flood advisory in parts of Carver and Wright counties.

The storm dissipated as it moved toward the Twin Cities.

There were no reports of injuries.
