Several clusters of thunderstorms erupted during the afternoon hours of Wednesday, June 28, 2017 producing heavy rain, pockets of wind damage, funnel clouds, and two very brief tornadoes.

Storms across northeast Iowa and southwest Wisconsin produced rainfall of 2 to 3 inches and wind gusts in the 50-80 mph range.  This not only led to river and flash flooding and pockets of wind damage.

Storms developed across southeast Minnesota in the evening hours and produced several funnel clouds. Two of these funnels touched ground briefly with only minor tree damage reported from one of them.
