Overview

On Sunday, June 11th, a strong line of showers and thunderstorms pushed east across portions of the Upper Peninsula. This area of showers and thunderstorms originated early in the morning across the Central Plains and produced considerable severe weather over Minnesota/Wisconsin before clipping Iron/Dickinson/Delta/Menominee/Schoolcraft counties in the U.P early in the afternoon.

Numerous trees were reported down with this strong line of thunderstorms, which ultimately led to several thousand residents without power and a few smaller buildings being damaged.
