Tornado Hits 3 Farms, Crosses I-94 in Western Minnesota
DALTON (AP) -- Authorities say two powerful tornadoes damaged farms and left one person dead in western Minnesota as severe storms moved across parts of the Midwest.
The National Weather Service says one tornado struck at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday near
Dalton. Three farmsteads were hit, and one of those farmhouses was flattened.
Otter Tail County says two people were taken to a hospital and one fatality was confirmed, but details weren't immediately released.
