EAST-NORTHEAST A 1.5 MILE STRING OF DUAL POLE/CROSS-BEAM HIGH
TENSION POWER LINES WERE TOPPLED...CONSISTENT WITH LOW END EF2
TORNADIC WINDS. DAMAGE TO NEARBY FARMSTEADS INCLUDE NUMEROUS
UPROOTED AND PARTIALLY DENUDED TREES.

JUST SOUTH OF CROOKSTON A LINE OF 17 /EMPTY/ TANKER STYLE RAIL

GRAIN BINS WERE BLOWN OUT LEAVING PILES OF GRAIN ON THE GROUND.

DAMAGE WAS WIDESPREAD ACROSS THE CROOKSTON AREA...WITH THE MOST
EXTREME DAMAGES APPARENT ACROSS THE SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE CITY.
TO THE EAST OF CROOKSTON SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE TO SEVERAL SHELTER
BELTS WAS NOTED ALONG AND JUST NORTH OF POLK COUNTY 11 AND WEST
OF THE RED LAKE RIVER. SEVERAL FARM STORAGE BUILDINGS EXPERIENCED
SIGNIFICANT ROOF DAMAGE ALONG THE SAME PATH.

DAMAGE WAS OBSERVED ACROSS THE COMMUNITY OF GENTILLY WITH DAMAGE
TO SEVERAL LARGE SHELTER BELTS UP TO ONE HALF MILE NORTHWEST OF

EYEWITNESS OBSERVED THE START OF THE TORNADO ABOUT 1 MILE WEST OF
HIS FARMSTEAD BEFORE SEEKING SHELTER.

THE TORNADO TRACK CONTINUE ON TO THE EAST-NORTHEAST LEAVING A
NARROW YET DISCERNIBLE TRACK THROUGH SHELTERBELTS. AT ONE POINT
APPROXIMATELY 3 MILES NORTHWEST OF TERREBONNE MN DAMAGE...CONSISTENT
WITH LOW END EF2 TORNADIC WINDS...WAS OBSERVED. AT ONE FARMSTEAD A
WELL BUILT FULLY SECURED GARAGE WAS DESTROYED...WHILE AT A NEARBY
FARMSTEAD 5 EMPTY GRAIN BINS WERE LOFTED OFF THEIR FOUNDATION. THE
FARTHEST WAS OVER 1/2 MILE WHILE A 5TH BIN HAS YET TO BE FOUND.

NEAR THE END OF THE SPORADIC TORNADO TRACK SEVERAL POWER POLES WERE
BENT AT ANGLES GREATER THAN 45 DEGREES. ONE WAS BROKEN OFF NEAR THE
BASE. FROM THIS POINT FOR APPROXIMATELY 2 MORE MILES ISOLATED TREE
DAMAGE...CONSISTENT WITH EF0 WIND SPEEDS WAS NOTED. THE DAMAGE PATH
ENDED ABOUT HALFWAY BETWEEN PLUMMER MN AND BROOKS MN...ONE MILE WEST
