Hail as big as tennis balls fell throughout the region and there were reports of funnel clouds, including one that the weather service says might have touched down briefly near Peever.

The media reports that weather service officials will be determining whether straight-line winds or a tornado caused the damage around Big Stone City and Big Stone Lake and nearby Ortonville, Minn.
