Small hail rains on Minneota

The storm expected to hit the Minneota area this weekend took its first strange and bizarre hits on the community on Friday.

Thunder, lightning and a strange form of small hail or ice pellets have caused residents to wonder what's coming next.

Mixed in with sporadic heavy winds, the weather has been "crazy" as best.

"I think we've had a little bit of everything," one person said.

The hail in the afternoon at one point saturated the streets and yards and looked like a covering of snow.

More bad weather is expected through the weekend and safety warnings are out all over the state.
