 Brief Description: A marginally F2 tornado made two brief touchdowns in a rural area of east central Crow Wing County. The tornado was confirmed by the county's Emergency Services Coordinator and trained spotters. Damage was concentrated on a cluster of farms near the Mississippi River. About ten buildings on one farm suffered extensive damage. The roof and doors were torn off a hay barn, and a dump truck was pushed about six feet into the side of a shed. Other outbuildings were knocked down, and a garage was shifted on its foundation. There was some structural damage and many uprooted trees on two nearby farms. Length and width of path and dollar amount of damage are estimated.
