F1 Tornado hits Lake Minnetonka

One week ago a tornado with wind speeds of 85-100 mph
hit one of the northern bays of Lake Minnetonka.
Fortunately no one was hurt and the damage was
fairly minor with large trees down and roofs damaged.

Here the cattails were flattened where the tornado
came off the lake.

The tornado's path was about 200 yards wide
and it created sporadic damage along a length of 9.5 miles.
