Episode Narrative Isolated thunderstorms developed across portions of southern Gila county, including the area around Hayden, during the afternoon hours on August 8th. The very hot and relatively dry nature of the atmosphere allowed the storms to generate very strong and gusty outflow winds. The strong winds were sufficient to cause damage to roofs and trees in the area.
Event Narrative Isolated thunderstorms developed across portions of southern Gila county, including the area around Hayden, during the afternoon hours on August 8th. The very hot and rather dry nature of the airmass allowed the storms to produce strong and gusty microburst winds. In fact, a Severe Thunderstorm Warning was issued for the area at about 440 pm in the afternoon. According to local law enforcement, at 510 pm strong microburst wind gusts estimated to be at least 50 knots caused numerous tree branches to be blown down. In addition, the gusty winds blew a number of shingles off of area roofs.
