Idaho Press-Tribune: Big Weather Hits Treasure Valley

Posted By on Fri, Sep 6, 2013 at 2:00 PM

Communities around the Treasure Valley were hit with extreme weather Thursday, including thunderstorms that sent emergency advisories buzzing to cellphones.

According to this morning’s Idaho Press-Tribune, golf ball-sized hail pummeled Meridian, mudslides closed Highway 55 and an inch and a half of rain fell on Nampa in 30 minutes, leading residents on the 1000 block of 8th Ave. South to form a bucket brigade to bail out at least one neighbor’s home.

Power outages were also reported throughout the area on Thursday, in what KBOI-TV2 meteorologist Vin Crosby told the Press-Tribune was the heaviest storm activity he’s seen in about 15 years.
