South Minneapolis Tornado Damage

A small tornado tore its way down Portland Ave this afternoon. Afterward, I walked the three blocks to take my own pictures of the carnage.

Peek at the pics.

Great photos...were those all just on Portland. Any damage over by you?

Most of the damage was between 42nd and 35th on Portland and Park. Which is where the pics were taken.

Actually -- I didn't even notice anything going on (other than heavy rain) until Jon tried to drive down Park to get home and called me around 2 to see if I was alright. Despite the flooded yard, not even a leaf blew off here.

I live really close to there as well and didn't notice much but rain and dark skies!
