Our next move was to head back to the north to intercept the supercells and bow echo that were dropping southeast out of Central Minnesota once again. We arrived in Princeton Minnesota (Mille Lacs County) around 6:45 PM CDT and waited for the next round of storms to move in. A tornado warning was issued for Mille Lacs County, sirens went off and the local fire department were driving around the city of Princeton, warning the public of the approaching severe weather, this was a good 20-25 minutes before the storm arrived, so plenty of time for people to seek shelter!
A brief rope tornado was reported 3 miles east of Foreston Minnesota at 7:25 PM CDT Saturday, July 17th, 2010. This was about 15 miles north-northwest of Princeton Minnesota in Mille Lacs County.
Shawn, Sam, and I left Duluth around 2 PM Saturday and returned back home around 9:45 PM Saturday Evening.
