Duluth Storm Leaves Heavy Rain, Hail, Lightning Damage

by

DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - A line of thunderstorms that moved through the area on Sunday night resulted in some heavy rain, quarter inch hail  and lightning damage in Duluth.  Rainfall amounts ranged from about a half inch at the airport to nearly 2 and a half inches in West Duluth.  The Duluth Fire Department responded to three incidents involving lightning strikes.  A home on Greene Street in West Duluth had its power knocked out by a nearby lightning strike just before 9 p-m.  A lightning stike that hit the chimney of a three story apartment building at 1432 East Superior Street started a small fire and left a hole in the roof during the heavy rain which left extensive water damage in the building.  Initial damage estimates were set at 75 thousand dollars.  Another lightning strike was reported at 328 Owatonna Street in Woodland which blew a hole in the roof and started a fire in a second story bedroom.  Damage in that incident was set at around 40 thousand dollars.  There were no injuries reported
