MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Storms packing high winds and windshield-shattering hail have rumbled across central Minnesota, but no serious damage or injuries are reported.

National Weather Service meteorologist Byron Paulson says a brief tornado touchdown was reported Tuesday near Brooten in west-central Minnesota, but there was no significant damage.

Paulson say hail measuring 1.75 inches shattered windshields in Albany in central Minnesota.

Winds whipped up to 60 mph or better in Benton County.

Another round of storms is possible Wednesday afternoon and evening across southern Minnesota and western Wisconsin.
