Tornadoes Tear Through Midwest

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - The National Weather Service says as
many as seven tornadoes may have touched down in southeast North
Dakota and western Minnesota.

Weather service meteorologist Greg Gust in Grand Forks, N.D.,
said preliminary data shows there were at least four tornadoes in
the area Saturday evening. Crews also looked at tornado damage in
Grant and Douglas counties in Minnesota.

Gust said a twister near Tyler, N.D., was on the ground for
about five miles and had wind speeds greater than an EF3, which
range from 136 to 165 mph. It destroyed seven farms buildings,
tossed a pickup and uprooted a beet crop.

No injuries were reported in any of the tornadoes.
