LAKE CRYSTAL — Forecasters say stormy weather spawned a couple of  tornadoes in south-central Minnesota, but there are no reports of injuries or significant damage.

The National Weather Service says one tornado was reported about 10:30 p.m. Sunday by a trained spotter between Lake Crystal and Judson. A second twister was seen a short time later about six miles north of Lake Crystal.
