Worst Summer Storm in Bemidji History?

8/16/2022 (Permalink)

Thunderclouds are moving through the atmosphere. We restore storm damage 24-hours a day in Beltrami County.

Our local team in Bemidji, Grand Rapids, and Hibbing restores storm damage 24-hours a day. In 2012, 80 miles per hour straight-line winds caused by a fast-moving thunderstorm tore through northern Minnesota and left a trail of debris and property damage. Powerlines fell, leaving many people without power.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), straight-line winds cause far more damage than winds from tornadoes. The NOAA defines straight-line winds as thunderstorm winds that have no rotation, and these winds do not produce tornadoes.

Downbursts are a common cause of wind damage from a thunderstorm, and they can reach over 100 miles per hour and are caused by air being dragged down by precipitation. When the air reaches the ground, it spreads out across the surface of the land it encounters in a straight line.

A Derecho is a very long-lived and damaging thunderstorm. A storm is classified as a derecho if the wind damage swath extends more than 240 miles and has wind gusts of at least 58 miles per hour along most of the length of the storm’s path.
