Severe weather rumbles through Mower, Fillmore, Olmsted and Goodhue Counties Sunday evening

Severe weather rumbled through our KAUS listening area late yesterday afternoon and early last night as two different severe thunderstorm warnings were issued for Mower County.

The first warning was in effect until 5:45 p.m. Sunday afternoon for southern Mower and northeast Mitchell County in north central Iowa as the National Weather Service’s radar indicated 60 mph winds and ping pong ball to quarter sized hail and heavy rain with the storm.  Another severe thunderstorm warning was issued  for northeastern Mower, northwestern Fillmore and southwestern Olmsted Counties until 6:30 p.m. as the same storm continued on a northeasterly track at 15-25 mph and affected such cities as Grand Meadow, Dexter, Racine, Spring Valley and Stewartville.  The storm went on to trigger further severe thunderstorm warnings for Fillmore and Olmsted Counties, and eventually a tornado warning for Goodhue County. 

There were no reports of damage done by the storm, and there were also no reports of tornado touchdowns or damage in Goodhue County.
