This formed very quickly to the WSW of Elbow Lake and tracked to the south of Wendell or due west of Elbow Lake.  It stayed largely over open field, but left minor markings in corn and soybean fields as noted in video and confirmed by a storm damage survey team.  Once the tornado lifted a funnel cloud was evident for several minutes and passed just to the northwest of Elbow Lake.
