Episode Narrative This episode began late in the evening of July 31st and continued into the early morning hours of August 1st, as severe thunderstorms from central North Dakota moved into eastern North Dakota. Many of these storms showed a bow structure, or a structure indicative of strong winds. The storms were also slow movers and several rounds of them tracked over the same area. Hope, ND, was hit by both strong winds and very heavy rainfall. Damaging wind gusts were reported from Hope all the way through northern Richland County (ND). The storms crossed the Red River and produced more wind damage across northern Wilkin County (MN).
Event Narrative The wind gust was measured by a MNDOT RWIS sensor northwest of Rothsay. Stronger wind gusts may have occurred shortly after, but the power failed.
