Death, Tornado and Power Outages in Minnesota Storm

MINNEAPOLIS (Sept. 22) - There are unverified reports of tornado strikes from a storm in central Minnesota that left at least one person dead.

The 45-year-old man was hit by a tree branch.

Tens of thousands of people in the Minneapolis-St.Paul area have lost power from the storm that blew down power lines, damaged homes and uprooted trees.

The National Weather Service says there are reports of wind damage across wide parts of the Twin Cities area.

Kris Hondl says more than a dozen homes were damaged in her neighborhood. She says water poured in through her roof, which was partially torn off.
