Lightning Scattered Across SE Jackson County

An overnight thunderstorm put down dozens of lightning strikes from the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, near the Oregon-California border, to the Jackson County-Klamath County line east of Howard Prairie Lake. A handful of strikes also came down in the Ashland Watershed area, between Wagner Butte and the West Fork of Ashland Creek. Two strikes were also recorded in Josephine County approximately 3 miles northeast of Little Grayback Peak.

Engine crews from ODF's Medford Unit are looking for a smoke on Chinquapin Mountain, 2 miles south of Hyatt Lake.

Lightning activity was significantly heavier east of the Cascade Range in Klamath County. The storm tracked as far north as Bend in central Oregon.
