MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Just as fast as it swelled up on radar, Saturday’s severe weather was gone. Before it left, however, it caused some concern for people living in the southwest metro.

Heavy rain and hail pelted many counties as the storm started in the southwest and moved northeastward through the state. Tornado and severe thunderstorm warnings were issued, and there were even reports of funnel clouds seen near Gaylord, Minn.

WCCO-TV viewers took these photos of the storm.

Not even a week since a tornado ripped through North Minneapolis, the sound of sirens could be heard creeping toward the metro. The dark clouds even put a damper on a community barbecue held for those trying to recover and rebuild from last Sunday’s tornado.

By Saturday evening, the storm had passed, but there are still concerns of more storms Sunday and swelling rivers in the south.
