MINNEAPOLIS — Forecasters said at least four unconfirmed tornadoes may have touched down in western Minnesota when strong storms moved through the state.

Sunday’s hot, sticky weather gave way to storms that toppled trees and power lines. National Weather Service meteorologist Jennifer Ritterling said today the four unconfirmed tornadoes were in Grant, Wilkin and Otter Tail counties.

The storms damaged the stands at Brainerd International Raceway and left a section in a pile of twisted metal.
