Confirmed Tornado West of Mankato

Tornado on the ground near Klossner/Searles area. Confirmation from storm spotters on the ground of a rain-wrapped tornado near Klossner - moving east at 35, threatening the towns of Nicollet and eventually the Mankato area. We're picking up a tornado index over 8 with this system (the Wadena tornado registered a 7.2 by comparison). Wind shear over 103 mph - if you live in the Mankato area you should be in the basement, under the stairs, under a table or work bench - a dangerous situation for the greater Mankato area through the evening hours.
