Tornadoes, major flooding cause damage in central Minnesota

 


Severe storms, including two confirmed tornadoes and massive amounts of rain swept across north-central Minnesota Monday afternoon, toppling trees and tombstones in Litchfield and causing 50 residents of an assisted living center in Watkins to flee to other facilities.

Shortly after 10:30 p.m., the National Weather Service in Duluth issued a “flash flood emergency” for southern Aitkin County and Pine County.

“Abandon campgrounds and camp sites near creeks and rivers,” it warned.
