The National Weather Service says there's a good chance Central Minnesota will see severe weather Saturday afternoon/evening. A broken line of thunderstorms will develop over western Minnesota during the middle of the afternoon and will quickly become severe with very large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes possible.
A threat of severe weather made its way to the St. Cloud area but quickly dissipated. The National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm warning for parts of southeastern Stearns County, Meeker County and Western Wright County just after 10:30 p.m.
This week in our "Behind the Scenes" series on WJON, we help you stay safe during severe weather at the Benton County Emergency Management Center. It doesn't take long for the skies to turn scary and that's when Jim McDermott and the Benton County Emergency Management Center spring into action.
