Minneapolis maps tornado's path
The City of Minneapolis has completed work on a map that shows the path of Sunday's tornado, and the impact it had on the city, building by building.
Major damage, marked in red, starts at about Plymouth and Upton, and continues on a diagonal path northeast.
The major damage becomes more concentrated starting at about 36th and Fremont. [HT: MPR]. This is the same area where the National Weather Service says the storm gained strength from an EF 1 to EF 2 before crossing the Mississippi.
The city now estimates that something like 3,000 structures were damaged, 1,600 of them seriously, including 274 homes. At least 1,700 truckloads of debris have been hauled away.
