A major round of severe storms hit the Twin Cities metro area during the evening and overnight hours. This footage was shot on the north line of storms that moved through northern Hennepin and Wright Counties. Footage was shot around the town of Corcoran, MN on Highway 55.
Video includes some driving shots of vivid lightning and lots of large hail falling and hitting the ground and the chase vehicle.
