People in Fisher, Minnesota are spending the day cleaning up after a quick storm went through the area overnight. Some say all it took was about thirty seconds to rip down trees and damage buildings and crops. The Swanson family was celebrating a birthday when they saw a line of rain and wind coming from the west. One large tree fell, and they headed for the basement.

Matt Sorenson – Fisher, MN: “I was looking out, we were out at the front porch like my dad was saying, saw it coming through, watching tree line by tree line disappear under the rain, then the wind picked up, by the time I got right to the bottom of the basement it all stopped.”

The Sorenson's says about 20 trees fell during the storm.
