Sounds like there's damage in Apple Valley/Lakeville. Coworkers reporting lots of trees down, power poles snappled on Pilot Knob and at least one trampoline when through a window in Lakeville.

Limbs and trees down in Burnsville. No power.

Is it asking too much to have FM stations break away from music to provide up to date weather information? WCCO has too much static when there is a storm, the weather is too vague and repetitive.

Live in Farmington off Pilot Knob, just South of all the downed power lines. Happened around 4am and everyone lost power. Left for work at 7am and a long line of utility crews and police officers were working on them. A tree cut a trailer home in half in that area, too.

They should wait on restoring power. All the work will likely be undone again by tomorrow morning.

@SqaureD80 - I live about 2 miles south of the downed power lines and we were in the dark as well. I talked to a friend of mine who lives 5 minutes south of me and he didnt lose power. It was a mess.
