plains and upper Mississippi Valley with Golf Ball to
baseball-sized hail and 60 to 80 mph winds. Baseball
sized hail bombarded counties just southeast of
Minneapolis St. Paul, while Golf Ball sized hail struck
western and central Wisconsin.Total damage estimates
are unknown, although around $1 million damage was
reported in extreme west-central Wisconsin about 40 miles
northeast of Rochester.
