Clean-up continues from Sunday’s storm



KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — Derbis remains from Sunday’s lightning storm in Klamath Falls.

UPDATE: Aug. 8, 12:36 p.m.

Viewing the Basin spoke with Lane Wortman from Reames Country Club Wednesday afternoon. The course took significant damage from the storm, causing thousands of dollars in estimated damage.

Wortman says the course needs to replace benches and tee signs, remove a “100-year-old tree” and fix roof damage.

Strong winds and rapid amounts of rain caused damage around town including affecting power customers.

On South Sixth Street, a few businesses lost signage and a witness says water was so high that it flooded a parked car. Dirt remained on walkways downtown Tuesday afternoon from water accumulation that flooded sidewalks.


The lights inside the Enterprise Rent-a-Car sign on South Sixth Street are visible Monday after Sunday's lightning storm pushed out the exterior of the sign.

Viewing the Basin asked Mitchell for the main cause of the power outages.

How did Sunday’s storm compare to others in the past in this area?

The broken remains of the Enterprise Rent-a-Car sign rest near the business' entrance.
