Episode Narrative A line of severe thunderstorms developed over southeast Montana on the evening of August 30th, and continued to track across western and central North Dakota. These thunderstorms reached the Devils Lake region just after midnight, producing strong wind gusts and large hail. The storms eventually tracked into northeast North Dakota and the far northwest corner of Minnesota. This was a perfect elevated thunderstorm scenario, with the storms being fed by the low level jet. The greatest core of damage occurred from Grafton (ND) to Donaldson (MN), where strong straight line winds were measured by several mesonet wind sensors.
Event Narrative Numerous large tree branches were broken down and several large trees, both oak and poplar, were snapped off in shelterbelts and groves across portions of Arveson Township.
