The National Weather Service says several tornadoes touched down in southeast North Dakota and western Minnesota. No injuries appear to have been reported.

Meteorolgist Tom Grafenauer says a line of storms that started in North Dakota and moved east into Minnesota appears to have generated several tornadoes. He says touchdowns were reported near Tyler, N.D.; Tenney, Minn.; and Fergus Falls, Minn.

Grafenauer says one tornado appeared to be on the ground for 20 or 30 minutes.

Most of the tornado touch downs were reported between about 6:15 and 7 p.m. Saturday.

Grafenauer says a storm survey team went out Sunday morning to assess the damage and determine exactly how many separate tornadoes were involved.
