Photos Storm Reports Rainfall Wind Reports

 

 

 

Two waves of storms moved through on July 7th and brought scattered wind damage and hail to the size of quarters. The first round moved southeast out of Minneapolis and affected the area between Interstate 94 and 90 in Wisconsin in the afternoon. This brought downed power lines and trees from about Wabasha Minnesota through the Wisconsin Dells. The second round of storms moved through much of the area from west to east in the evening, producing sporadic wind gusts of 50-60 mph and hail the size of quarters. Much of the region received rainfall except for parts of northeast Iowa.
