Reports of tornado touchdowns as storms sweep through southern Minnesota
HENDERSON, Minn. (FOX 9) - There have been at least two reports of tornado touchdowns Friday evening as strong storms swept through the southern portion of Minnesota.
Tornado warnings were issued for a number of counties southwest of the metro, including in Scott and Le Sueur counties, as the storms dropped rain and brought heavy winds. However, all those warnings had expired by 6:30 p.m.
There were two reported touchdowns: One in Arlington at 5:37 p.m. and another near Henderson less than ten minutes later. Neither of those reports have been confirmed at this time and both were reportedly brief.
The storms did leave behind damage in Arlington, where photos from Julie Berger Traxler shows flooding on Clinton Street.
While the warnings are gone, storms and rain are continuing to move through Minnesota on Friday, particularly south of I-94.
