Severe Weather and Large Hail on Sunday
Alvarado, MN (WDAY-TV/WDAZ-TV) -- Numerous thunderstorms developed in northern parts of North Dakota and Minnesota early Sunday afternoon. A few of these storms quickly became severe and dropped some very large hailstones. Several Severe Thunderstorm Warnings were issued by the National Weather Service because of the hail. A Tornado Warning was issued at one point as a storm was showing rotation, but luckily there was no confirmation of a tornado.
There was however some dangerously large hailstones that fell across northwestern Minnesota. The town of Alvarado was hit hard with very large hail. These hailstones ranged from 2-3 inches in diameter, which can be compared to golf ball to baseball size hail. Here are some of the photos we receive from our viewers in Alvarado.
