At least two tornadoes touched down in the Twin Cities metro area Sunday, July 28.

According to the National Weather Service, preliminary information indicated that a tornado touched down in Silver Lake in McLeod County about 3:40 p.m. and another west of Scandia about 4:30 p.m.

Damage reports were filing in Sunday night. In Scandia, a garage wall was taken off, and at another residence the roof of a pole barn was ripped off.

Posts on social media Sunday night showed pictures in Scandia of pontoons overturned in lakes, grills on their sides on decks and trees ripped out at their roots.

Reports of tornadoes near Lindstrom and Forest Lake possibly were associated with the confirmed tornado near Scandia, according to Brent Hewett of the National Weather Service’s Chanhassen office.

By about 5:30 p.m., most of the threat had shifted toward Wisconsin.
