Added on by Bud Flagstad.

On July 1st, 2011 a large storm hit Burnett County Wisconsin.  The path of the storm was extremely wide damaging property from Grantsburg to Danbury in width with reported wind speeds of 120-130MPH in Solon Springs.

This storm hit fast and caught many off guard.  The damage to property has been very large in the area and power is out in numerous locations.  The total number of people without power was said to exceed 5600.
