Tornadoes confirmed across swath of northern Minnesota

DULUTH - A devastating storm system produced multiple tornadoes along its roughly 60-mile northern Minnesota path Wednesday, the National Weather Service in Duluth confirmed.

Whitefish Lake and the city of Crosslake, north of Brainerd in Crow Wing County, were hit the hardest, said Patrick Ayd with the Weather Service. Portions of Aitkin and Carlton counties also saw destruction.

A Weather Service survey team went to all three counties Thursday to assess damage and verify tornado activity, and it wasn't finished with its work yet Thursday evening. Ayd said the strength of the tornadoes will be shared Friday but that the city of Wright in Carlton County experienced a weaker one that traveled about 5 miles.
