Episode Narrative Several rounds of thunderstorms crossed southern Wisconsin, from early in the day through the mid to late evening hours of July 27th. Lightning from the morning storms struck a home in Dane County in Black Earth, while homes in Mequon in Ozaukee County were struck by lightning from storms in the afternoon and evening. Lightning also struck homes in Fort Atkinson in Rock County from evening storms that also produced heavy rains that caused a mud slide that blocked part of U.S. Highway 12 at the State Highway 26 interchange. The rains soaked recently graded soil from construction that was unstable due to recently planted grass not yet having taken root.
Event Narrative A home on West Highland Road in Mequon was struck by lightning and the garage caught fire. The home suffered water and smoke damage.
