Gusty Winds Accompany Monday's Storms

     Today marks the official start of spring.  But already, a few places got their first taste of severe weather on their final day of winter.
     Damage reports are not widespread but there were some reports of roofs torn off and power knocked in Elysian, that's northeast of the local area near Mankato.

     Closer to home, a few communities saw strong winds.  A wind gust of 58 mph was reported at the airport in Rochester Intl. Airport.  63 mph was recorded in Mason City.

     A semi was toppled by winds near Dexter.

     Two miles north of Albert Lea a grain bin was shifted off it's foundation by strong winds.  It's pictured above.

     In Glenville, a power pole fire caused an outage for nearly 400 people.

     Also tree limbs in a few communities sustained some damage.

     If you have a report of damage... let the Storm Tracker 6 Weather team know.... weather@kaaltv.com or post it to my facebook page.
