Heavy storms came through Southeast Minnesota on Saturday night, and it looks like the high winds may have torn a tree right out of the ground.

This tree could have already been cut down and placed there, I get it, but isn't it a coincidence that after a HUGE storm rolled through the area that a tree was on the sidewalk right next to the school's administrative building? I think not.


It was reported that 70 mph winds came through some of Southeast Minnesota, and I am guessing that had something to do with the tree on the sidewalk.

My girlfriend and I got some dinner in Rochester and when we got back into town I saw the tree was just there. On the sidewalk. Doesn't seem like the greatest place to leave a tree, does it?


Hopefully, they get it moved soon, but I did snap a couple pictures of the tree, and it won't be fun to move (especially with the heat returning Monday and Tuesday).

Did you have any storm damage photos? Be sure to share them on our FB page!
