Episode Narrative A complex of thunderstorms that developed across South Dakota early Tuesday morning, August 2nd, moved eastward into west-central, central and east-central Minnesota, then into west-central Wisconsin during the late morning. Brief severe wind gusts along a bow echo moved across the area, with mainly tree damage. In addition to the wind damage, two waves of thunderstorms that moved across portions of Rusk County, produced locally two to four inches of rain, and caused roads to washout near Hawkins.
Event Narrative Two county roads were washed out in far eastern Rusk County due to excessive rainfall of two to four inches in less than 2 hours.
