June 21, 2007
A small, fast-moving storm dropped large hail and heavy rain Wednesday evening across Central Minnesota, sparking a series of weather warnings and causing some damage.
Vehicles, glass doors and vinyl siding were damaged by golf ball-sized hail in Sartell.
The storm seemed to come out of nowhere, showing up on radar minutes before heavy rains fell in the area. Hail fell in several areas.
In Chisago County, softball-sized hailstones broke windows, punched 3-inch holes into siding and ruined vehicles.
