It wasn't strong for a monsoon. It did cause a few minor lightning strike fires. It didn't cause any widespread power outages. It did have some wind, hail (not near me, more southwest of Tucson), rain, and for a brief time a severe thunderstorm warning.
At least there was some excitement! There was also a little bit of wind damage at Ridgepointe.
|Wind from the first monsoon storm of 2012 knocked bark and a few branches off of this tree.|
|This light pole was already down before the storm started so I can't include it in the storm damage.|
|The storm didn't cause an eviction notice on a nearby apartment.|
I just thought I'd include a photo of it for fun.
