Tornadoes and Severe Weather: May 25, 2008

On Sunday, May 25th, there were three tornadoes in east central Minnesota. The strongest one, an EF3 on the Enhanced Fujita Scale, caused the death of a two-year-old boy in Hugo. The tornadoes began with the first one touching down at about 4:36pm in Coon Rapids. The more destructive tornado began at 4:55pm on the eastern shore of Lake Peltier in Lino Lakes and then moved east to Hugo. The tornado dissipated at 5:05pm just north of Irish Avenue and 140th street in eastern Hugo. A third, weaker tornado touched down on the north side of Marine on the St. Croix, crossed the St. Croix River, then moved into Wisconsin where it lifted 3.5 miles southwest of East Farmington in Polk County, Wisconsin. In addition, there was a waterspout over southeastern Leech Lake on May 25th that was seen (and photographed) by many.

Below is the public information statement issued by the National Weather Service.
