This was one of 4 tornados in Stearns County MN that evening. There is no path data available. I have it - I was there. The tornado passed directly through the town of Melrose MN, ripping off roofs and leveling two buildings. Hundreds of large trees snapped off or uprooted. Start of damage I observed was approx. 45°39'26 N 94°49'33 W. End of path was at approx. 45°40'50 N 94°48'29 W. Sure it's 29 years ago but it was a significant storm and one of the most damaging in Stearns County since records have been kept. I have photos I'll add later.

I have better photos of the tornado and damage. I just need to get them scanned.
