KASSON, Minn. - A 2003 Dodge Neon is damaged: the back window is broken and there is also all kinds of hail damage on the hood of the car with glass all over the backseat.
Car owners Amy and Cory Packman were shocked at how quickly their beloved 6-year-old car got destroyed.
"It was damaged pretty bad," Amy Packman said. "My husband came out here for a brief second. And he walked back in the house and the car was fine. He came back out to look and it was completely shattered."
The Packmans say they have insurance but don't have glass coverage so they unfortunately will pay out-of-pocket.
Two trees also fell in their backyard.
Storms sweep across Minnesota with high winds, hail
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Severe thunderstorms have rolled across central and southern Minnesota, bringing winds gusting up to 80 mph, multiple reports of hail and cutting power to more than 4,000 people.
The storms prompted tornado warnings in the southern Twin Cities and southeastern Minnesota, but no tornadoes were reported as of Tuesday evening. Several people posted pictures of menacing clouds on social media.
The National Weather Service says the storms brought winds of 70-80 mph across southern Scott County and parts of Dakota and Rice counties.
Trees were reported down in North Mankato. Three power poles were snapped and another fractured near Henderson, which saw wind gusts up to 85 mph.
The storms followed a warm, humid day. The temperature reached 85 degrees Fahrenheit (29 degrees Celsius) at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
Drier, cooler weather was forecast for Wednesday.
