article imageSevere Storms Slam Into US Midwest, Great Lakes

By Andrew Boggs     Jun 25, 2009 in Environment
The Great Lakes region is being pounded by heavy storms; however the aftermath still leaves the Midwest warm and muggy. More severe weather is predicted for Ohio and Kentucky on Sunday.
Severe storms slammed through the Midwest Great Lakes region on Thursday evening, bringing down trees and power lines in the Greater Cleveland area as well in other parts of Ohio.
Cleveland Hopkins International Airport lost power around seven in the evening as heavy rains and lighting pounded the region.
Hail was reported in Southwest Wisconsin measuring about two inches in diameter, and some areas reported wind gusts up to seventy miles per hour. The storm knocked out power in several regions lasting from a few minutes to better than an hour or more as the storms passed overhead. The storms followed a warm weather pattern that covered the Plains states and the Midwest and Great Lakes region.
Temperatures are expected to drop a few degrees when a weak cold front works its way south from Canada, however temperatures will continue to hover in the 70’s over Lake Superior to the 90’s in the Ohio valley. Severe weather is predicted to return to the Midwest on Sunday as another round of strong storms develop in Ohio and Kentucky.
