Wisconsin Macroburst Downed So Many Trees the Damage Can Be Seen From Space
Destructive thunderstorm winds damaged tens of thousands of trees in northern Wisconsin on Friday night and left a scar in the heavily forested region visible from space.
You can see the large area of tree damage between the arrows of the July 22 image in the before-and-after comparison above, as pointed out by Scott Bachmeier, research meteorologist at the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies. Notice how the zone where the tree damage occurred appears lighter compared to the same area in the before image from July 11 (note: turning up the brightness of your screen may help you see it more clearly).
A macroburst within a line of thunderstorms moving across northern Wisconsin was likely responsible for the widespread damage.
Macrobursts are large-scale downward moving air currents generated by thunderstorms that often result in brief but intense wind gusts near the earth’s surface. They are a much larger version of the more commonly known microburst that thunderstorms sometimes produce.
