MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Storms sweeping across central and southern Minnesota have dumped heavy rain and hail but caused no major damage.

The National Weather Service says two tornadoes were spotted Sunday in McLeod County and another twister was seen in Lyon County. But those counties report no damage or injuries.

Meteorologist Jacob Beitlich at the National Weather Service in Chanhassen says the potential for major storms was there, but "the ingredients didn't all come together at the right time."

An estimated 2 inches of rain was reported 10 miles north of Montevideo. Hail measuring 1 inch was reported in Glencoe.

Much of southern and central Minnesota was under a tornado watch until 11 p.m. Sunday.
