On May 12th, 2022 a destructive derecho raced across the Northern U.S. Plains. The storm brought damaging winds to Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Iowa, and Minnesota. Hurricane-force wind gusts were included in over 50 wind reports. Reports of damaging hail and tornadoes were also associated with the storm system. The system was responsible for more than 100,000 power outages and several fatalities.
Along with the severe weather, the system triggered a wide-sweeping haboob that brought stunning visuals and low visibility to Northern Plains’ residents.
