Storm Topples Tree, Knocks Down Power Lines In South Hopkins

Firefighters went to a home on 10th Avenue South after storms knocked down power lines, causing a suspicious burning smell in the home and appliances that smoked briefly.

Crews didn't find any flames, but power remained out.

A tree in a nearby home fell onto a garage, and branches elsewhere lay strewn about. However, damage was far from uniform. Just south of the neighborhood, residents didn't see any damage.

If Surburban Chevrolet had stayed in Hopkins instead of moving, they wouldn't have had every car in their lot inventory damaged by hail in Eden Prairie this week.
