It's been a week since devastating storms swept through the Northland. While tremendous strides have been made restoring power to those who lost it, crews are still faced with plenty of challenges to get everyone back on the grid. Wednesday, Lake Country Power provided an update for their area, as well as a video of what their crews are facing.
The Northland continues to recover from the heavy storms that hit overnight. This includes Minnesota state parks such as Itasca State Park, which also suffered downed trees and power loss. If you have camping plans going into the weekend, make sure to check conditions.
The storm that ripped through the Northland early Thursday morning not only destroyed trees, knocked out power and caused damage, but now there are storm-related fatalities being reported in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area.
