September 4th & 5th Storm Reports

Two rounds of severe weather hit the region on the afternoon and evening of September 4th and again in the late evening hours on the 4th and early morning hours of the 5th.  The types of severe weather ranged from large hail to the size of tennis balls in Canton, Minnesota; strong winds to 80 mph (including a measured 74 mph wind in Rochester, Minnesota at the helipad at St. Mary's Hospital), flash flooding, and a possible tornado in Grant County near Bloomington.  Additional information will be posted on this page later today along with radar images and any storm pictures.  Listed below is the extensive list of storm reports through the two events.
