Thunderstorm shakes through Becker County

Becker County is currently being rocked by a severe thunderstorm rumbling its way around the north edge of the county, moving southeast towards the Perham and Wadena area.

The storm began with a tornado warning just after 9 p.m., quickly turning to a watch, then a severe thunderstorm warning for the rest of the evening.

The latest weather alerts have the severe thunderstorm warning expiring in one hour, around 11:45 p.m.

Reports of ping pong-sized hail and straight line winds up to 70 miles per hour have people seeking shelter.

A few brief power outages have already been reported, and surely the storm shook a few trees loose, the wreckage only viewable come tomorrow morning.
