June 25, 2010: Olivia, MN

I met up with this storm near Olivia, MN. It produced some significant wind damage and flooding as it progressed down towards New Ulm. The treat of the day though was the spectacular mammatus display.

Storm near Olivia:

Not too long after this very strong winds from the east hit, snapped of a road sign, and blew it across the road. It was after the core of the storm had passed and was pretty odd. It also knocked down a light pole.
Flooding near Madelia:
