tornado almost hit us

A tornado went right over my house tonight. It touched down 1/4 mile north of me and hit downtown North Branch. We had a bunch of tornados in MN today. 2 actually hit downtown Minneapolis. There is video of it on KSTP TV - Minneapolis and St. Paul - Twin Cities News, Weather, Sports, Health and Politics from 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS I was still at work when it hit, but my neighbor is on the fire department and he video taped it going over our houses. Thats some freaky chit. We weren't even under a watch or anything.

Yeah, Jon it looked like you guys were gonna get the 2nd batch of storms. Did any tornados actually touch down? yes everyone is ok that i know of. Lots of trees and powerlines down, it did take the roof off the middle school in town which is literally right at the end of my street.
