It was originally thought that the earliest tornado in Minnesota history took place near Clarks Grove earlier in the month of March, but a new report from the National Weather Service says otherwise.

On March 6, an EF-1 tornado touched down near Bricelyn in Faribault County at a little after 5 PM.The tornado then traveled northeast for 9 1/2 miles ending at 5:15 near Wells.

This tornado occurred 30 minutes before the Clarks Grove event.
Making it the earliest twister to ever touch down in Minnesota.
No one was injured during the storms.

It is estimated that Pihl's Park south of Wells sustained upwards of $10,000 in damages, while overturned campers sustained $100,000–$200,000 in damages.
Despite all the damages, plans are still on to open the park on time on May 1st.
