Storm clouds darkened the skies over Logan County in the late afternoon Wednesday and again Thursday morning. The storm system barreled down out of the northwest with high, gusting winds and dangerous lightning, wreaking damage throughout the county. Numerous downed limbs and power lines led to widespread power and phone outages. Scattered heavy rains accompanied the storms as well.  [picture by Jan Youngquist] click on picture for larger image
