••• An emergency official says a third death has been confirmed in a series of tornadoes that tore through Minnesota.

Freeborn County’s Emergency Management Director Mark Roche says one person was killed at a farm in southern Minnesota when the tornadoes struck Thursday night.

Roche estimates that up to nine tornadoes churned along a 18- to 20-miles path in rural parts of the county.

He says the tornadoes damaged 40 to 60 farms, but spared communities.

An elderly woman was killed when a twister wiped out her home near Almora in Otter Tail County, in northwestern Minnesota.

Farther north, officials say a man was killed when a tornado destroyed a gas station.
