The highway patrol reported that U.S. 10 east of the town was blocked by fallen timber. Hail as large as soflballs pounded the town of Detroit. Lakes, Minn. Large chunks of ice broke countless windows and dented many cars. Drenching rahs, estimated at 3 5 inches, accompanied 1 the hail. · A tornado warning for central and southeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin remained in effect early this morning.
