A tornado-warned storm swept through Beltrami County Monday evening.

Damage was reported at the Red Lake Pow Wow grounds and there are numerous reports across Beltrami County and the Red Lake Nation of tree damage and large hail.

The Beltrami Electric Cooperative reported over 900 customers without power last night, with line crews working through the night to restore power.

As of this morning, power has been restored to all but around 20 customers.

SKYWARN weather spotters are encouraged to report hail and wind damage to the National Weather Service.
