The tornado was reported near Garden City about 5 p.m. Tuesday. The weather service issued a tornado warning for communities south of Mankato and Owatonna. Large tree branches were down near Pemberton and a large tree blocked a road in New Richland.
The storm system produced golf ball-sized hail in Waldorf in Waseca County and quarter-sized hail in Lake Crystal in Blue Earth County.
