A line of severe thunderstorms swept across much of the Northland on Sunday night, bringing hail and high winds and leaving power outages in its wake.

Minnesota Power and Lake Country Power reported a combined total of more than 2,500 customers without power as of 10:15 p.m. Sunday. Major outages were in the Coleraine and Pengilly areas on the Iron Range, and near Lake Vermilion. Almost all customers had power restored by Monday morning.

The National Weather Service in Duluth relayed spotter reports of large hail in Itasca County - golf ball-size in the Bowstring area at about 6:30 p.m. and half dollar-size near Spring Lake at about 6 p.m.

The storms downed trees in the Buck Lake area of Itasca County just before 8 p.m., and a tree was reported down and blocking Minnesota Highway 65 in the Pengilly area at about 8:30 p.m. The line of storms continued to produce gusty winds as it moved east and south across the Iron Range and into the Duluth, Superior and Two Harbors areas.

 A severe thunderstorm warning for the Duluth, Hermantown and Two Harbors areas expired at 10:30 p.m. Sunday.
