Storms Increasing - Greatest Tornado Risk I-90 Corridor

Posted by: Paul Douglas Updated: June 16, 2014 - 3:44 PM

Tornado Warning Worthington Area. NWS Doppler at 3:40 PM shows strong rotation and a hook echo just west of Worthington - no confirmed tornadoes yet, but it's ripe. I suspect conditions are most ripe over far southern Minnesota, along the I-90 corridor into the evening hours, a risk of straight-line winds and flash flooding as far north as Willmar and the Twin Cities. Details on the new warning:
