Episode Narrative A line of severe thunderstorms tracked through north Idaho causing extensive damage from Kootenai county north to the United States and Canadian border. Numerous trees were blown down with power outages common due to winds between 60-70 MPH. Over 100 power poles had to be replaced, including at least 70 that snapped near Priest Lake. At least 15,000 homes in Kootenai, Bonner, and Boundary counties lost power. Every home in Boundary county lost power. Trees fell onto several homes, cars, and roadways, including highway 95 which was blocked north of Bonners Ferry and between Bonners Ferry and Sandpoint. The Army National Guard responded to provide additional aid to emergency personnel. The port of entry into Canada briefly closed due to the storm.
