MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A tornado has damaged at least three farms in rural Minnesota, but no injuries are reported.

Yellow Medicine County Sheriff Bill Flaten said in a statement the tornado was reported about 4 p.m. Monday southeast of St. Leo.

Flaten says at least three farms were hit, with machine sheds, grain bins, outbuildings and homes damaged.

He says there have been no reports of injuries.

St. Leo is about three hours west of Minneapolis.
