A line of powerful thunderstorms caused significant damage as it moved through the northwestern Minnesota city of Thief River Falls on Friday evening.
Minnesota has recorded its first case of anthrax in a cow since 2008. The Board of Animal Health said Friday that tests confirm a 4-year-cow found dead Monday on a farm in Pennington County of northwestern Minnesota died of anthrax. The beef herd had not been vaccinated against the disease. Board spokeswoman Bethany Hahn says a veterinarian will lift the quarantine on the herd 30 days after the cow’s death if there are no further cases.
