Storm includes large hail, powerful wind, heavy rain
GIBRALTAR, Wis. (AP) — Strong storms brought heavy rain and wind and large hail to eastern Wisconsin.
Hail up to the size of a baseball fell in parts of Brown, Outagamie and Waupaca counties Tuesday morning.
In Door County, trees and power lines were knocked down and Highway 42 was closed between county Highway A and Gibraltar Road because a live wire was arching on the roadway.
The National Weather Service issued a thunderstorm warning for Sheboygan and Fond du Lac counties. Winds of 60 mph were expected.
My uncle had nearly ping pong sized hail at his place in Waupaca within the last hour.— Sam Kuffel (@SamKuffelWx) September 7, 2021
