About 1,300 homes were without power after severe weather downed power lines in the Remer and Hill City areas.

A tornado touched down near Hill City Thursday night, and large hail fell in the area.  Lake Country Power officials said the storm downed several power lines.

Crews worked through the night to restore power.  Lake Country Power advised people to stay away from damaged lines and let crews handle the problem.
