Slow-moving storms produce large hail and tornadoes

(WDAY TV) - A long-lasting, slow-moving stretch of storms affected many folks in the area yesterday. The super-cell formed near Minot and slowly made it's way across the state, dumping large hail and tornadoes along the way.

This is video from Western Cass County as the storm rolled in. Some places even saw base-ball sized hail, including Pillsbury, North Dakota. The storms also produced several tornadoes that touched down in Foster and Griggs Counties.

A tornado caused some damage at a family farm near Linton, North Dakota. The tornado formed a few miles east of town, staying on the ground up to 10 minutes. The twister uprooted trees and impacted farmland, but no structures were hit.

The Horner Family sent these photos showing damage to a tree on their property. Another tornado, an EF-1, with winds packing 105 miles per hour hit east of Wilton. It was on the ground for 15 minutes.

Many of you took time to send us photos of the storm on Facebook. Teresa Winburn-Meyer sent us these photos from Lidgerwood where the winds uprooted trees, some of them pretty large. As you can see, one tree even toppled over onto a home.

Pam Brown sent us this photo from southwest of Jamestown where folks saw some awfully large hail from yesterday's massive system. This photo is from Mistie Berg of some funnel clouds forming in the Grandin area yesterday afternoon.

You can send up photos anytime. Just share them with WDAY or WDAZ on facebook. You can also email them to us: Weather@wday.com.
