A series of strong storms swept through the Twin Ports region yesterday, including an afternoon storm that brought gusty winds and small hail to Duluth around lunchtime. Later in the day, a severe thunderstorm about 70 miles west of Duluth touched down near Remer, and tracked southeast toward Hill City.

The Cass and Aitkin County Sheriff's Departments reported trees down, but no structural damage after early investigation following the storm. Storm chaser Bob Conzemius followed the tornadic storm and captured some photos and video for his website. Here is the video Conzemius captured of the tornadic storm.
