Dash cam video from an Eden Prairie patrol sergeant’s squad car captured an amazing lightning show over Flying Cloud Airport during Sunday night’s storms. This video is in real time, but the rapid flashes and bolts of lightning make it look like a timelapse.
Lightning caused a house fire in Lakeville, Minn. and a gas leak in Wyoming, Minn. but most of the Twin Cities metro escaped Sunday’s storms with little to no damage. To the north, Brainerd, Minn. was hammered by strong winds that toppled trees, knocked out power and left parts of Brainerd International Raceway in a pile of twisted metal. VIEW PHOTOS
