Prairie Creek lightning

Last week, thunderstorms rolled into Wallowa County, bringing wind and hail and cooler days. In Grant and Baker County, they were forecast as severe. They reached Wallowa County around 6 p.m. initially striking on the snowy summit of Chief Joseph Mountain and along Hurwall Divide. This strike occurred around 8:10 p.m., reaching the ground east of the Prairie Creek cemetery. It was one of the last vestiges of the storms.
