2:08 pm. Tornado Warnings posted from near Alexandria to Long Prairie and Sauk Centre area. Doppler estimates of 3.4" diameter hail, close to baseball size. The larger the hail - the stronger the updraft, the greater the potential for tornado formation. People living just north/west of St. Cloud should stay alert for violent weather over the next 30-90 minutes. Ask yourself now, where would you go if this was the real deal? Remember, a tornado watch is in effect until 8 pm for most of central MN.
