MINNEAPOLIS (AP/WCCO) — A fast-moving storm has pelted the Twin Cities with hail and rain.

The cloudburst hit downtown Minneapolis mid-afternoon Friday. National Weather Service meteorologist Dan Luna says the rain stretched from the Shakopee-Savage area southwest of Minneapolis north to North Branch.

The weather service received a report of 1.25-inch hail in Roseville. Hail measuring 1 inch was reported in Richfield, Edina, St. Paul, Arden Hills and Lino Lakes.

In northeastern Minnesota, a trained spotter reports hail measuring three-quarters of an inch in Saginaw in St. Louis County.

One WCCO-TV viewer reported that strong winds knocked a tree onto a home in Plymouth, causing damage. No one, however, was hurt.
