BISMARCK, North Dakota — Violent thunderstorms passed through central North Dakota for the second time in three days, leaving behind damage in New Salem.
Winds gusting up to 90 mph were reported in the Morton County town on Sunday night. The National Weather Service said large tree limbs were knocked down, and heavy rains caused street flooding. Pea- to nickel-size hail also fell in the county.
Cleanup continues in the Bismarck-Mandan area after a severe storm on Friday night that knocked out electricity to more than 10,000 people. Montana-Dakota Utilities spokesman Tim Rasmussen told The Bismarck Tribune (http://bit.ly/1FweYPf ) that power had been restored to most residents by Sunday night.
