Storms Hit U.P.

The clean up is under way after severe storms pounded parts of the UP Sunday.

Several trees and power lines were knocked down and the storm even washed out part of a highway in the Copper Country.

A 330-foot section of M-203 near Calumet collapsed during the overnight storm which produced marble-sized hail and almost four inches of rain.

Transportation officials constructed a gravel road as a bypass. They hope to have it fixed sometime this week.

Wind gusts topping 69 miles per hour also toppled trees in Houghton County.
