Confirmed: EF-1 Tornado East of Watertown


National Weather Service officials have confirmed there was an EF-1 tornado west of the Twin Cities Monday.

A strong line of thunderstorms moved southeast across west-central Minnesota, the Twin Cities metro, and west-central Wisconsin on Monday evening.

Officials say the storms produced numerous wind damage reports and an EF-1 tornado 2 miles east of Watertown in Carver and Hennepin counties.

Most of the downburst wind damage reports were from tree damage along the I-94 corridor.
