Update on the Minneapolis tornado:

Powerful winds on Wednesday tore off part of a 90-year-old metal church steeple in the city, toppled trees and scattered large outdoor tents and chairs set up for a Lutheran convention.

The National Weather Service issued tornado warnings after receiving reports of a tornado just north of downtown. A possible tornado also was spotted about 60 miles east in Emerald, Wis.

City officials say they've received no immediate reports of injury.

The steeple at the Central Lutheran Church was damaged as 120 people were inside, though a church spokesman said no one was injured.
