Strong winds and 'monster-sized' hail cause extensive damage to parts of Beltrami County


Jul. 28—BEMIDJI — Severe storms that produced "monster-sized" hail and high winds on Monday evening left behind a trail of ruin — from downed trees to home and property damage — in its wake across much of Beltrami County and beyond.

Beltrami County Emergency Management director Christopher Muller reported that large hail, ranging from golf ball to baseball-sized, was the dominant feature of the storm and was responsible for the majority of the damage around the county.

The storm, which likely had wind speeds of more than 60 mph, hit Redby and Red Lake particularly hard. The towns of Blackduck, Tenstrike and Pennington, along with parts of southeast Beltrami and Cass County also experienced the severe weather, National Weather Service Grand Forks meteorologist Carl Jones said.
