Today in weather history

In 1986...

A picturesque tornado touched down on this day in 1986 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This tornado was slow moving and was filmed by a helicopter crew from KARE-TV. The tornado stayed visible to thousands of people for nearly 30 minutes. Fortunately it did not cause any loss of life, but it did do $650,000 of damage.
