(Otter Tail County, MN) -- Storm cleanup efforts in Lakes Country are expected to take weeks.

Rain and heavy winds ripped through Otter Tail County Monday night flipping boats, downing trees and tearing roofs off businesses and homes. The Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office says deputies evacuated the Otter Lodge during the storm, which tore off the roof and caused heavy cosmetic damage.

Those who were staying at the lodge received a refund.
