Another spectacular day! Witnessed 13 tornadoes in southern Minnesota from near Kiester to north of Albert Lea. There was a near mile wide wedge that was on the ground for nearly an hour! Decided to play further south for the later show and was rewarded for patience. Pretty tough sitting tight and waiting while numerous tornado reports filter in from north of you. My sympathy goes out to all those who suffered losses this day. We came across many damaged properties where authorities were already heading to the scene.
Amazing photogenic large tornado north of Albert Lea, Minnesota.
Here's 3 Youtube vidoes from this day:
Massive mile wide wedge tornado near Congar, Minnesota.
Large cone tornado near Albert Lea.
Multivortex tornado near Kiester, Minnesota.
One of the first tornadoes to touchdown just south of the Minnesota border in northern Iowa.
Multivortex and truncated cones northeast of Kiester, MN.
My favorite tornado of the day. Same shot as the first one on the page, just a wider angle. Gorgeous!
If you are into supercell structure, this shot is for you! Awesome structure near Albert Lea!
