▶️ Red Flag Warning for Central Oregon Tuesday due to lightning risk
Summer thunderstorms in Central Oregon are nothing new. But even ones like those that rolled through Tuesday can manage to grab your attention.

“It was pretty gnar,” said Paul Streichan, manager of Whappos at the Silvermon Food Truck Court.

“It was so loud that the whole building shook,” said Jenna Wazny, Manager of Avid Cider Company in Bend.

The storm didn’t just shake Avid Cider, it also flooded it. 

“The hail started pretty soon after that and then it flooded in here and that is where my focus was,” said Wazny.

Silvermoon’s Food Truck Court also felt the storm’s wrath. 

“We definitely lost power for a brief couple of seconds and my ears are still kinda ringing to be honest. We felt a little strange being in a metal box around all of this,” said Streichan.

Within an hour, the skies turned from charcoal to blue and the sun was out. 

But that was just the first cell in the early afternoon. Another came through after 4:00 p.m.

Just one of those summer afternoons in Central Oregon.

A Red Flag or Fire Weather Warning is in place for Deschutes, Jefferson and Crook counties through the end of Tuesday due to the risk of lightning starting a fire.
 
One lightning strike Tuesday morning knocked out power to 34,000 Pacific Power customers.
