One woman is dead and more than 200,000 homes and businesses are without power in the upper Midwest on Saturday after severe thunderstorms struck parts of the Dakotas, Minnesota, and Wisconsin with damaging winds, lightning and baseball-sized hail.

The storms developed in the Dakotas on Friday and powered through Minnesota into Wisconsin, producing wind gusts up to 85 mph (137 kph) and large hailstones, some in excess of 4 inches (10 cm) in diameter, as well as short-lived tornadoes, said Brynn Kerr, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma.
