SAUK RAPIDS -- A Sauk Rapids storage facility is cleaning-up after Monday afternoon's storms.

Aspen Storage at 5004 Highway 10 had several of its shipping containers and three semi-trailers get blown over by the strong winds.  Spokesman Patrick Mastey says one of the containers was blown about 40 feet.

All of the units were empty as that facility is just where they store their empty containers when they aren't being rented out.
