The Kincardine area was hit by severe weather Friday, as a thunder storm rolled through in the morning, and another one later that afternoon.

The first storm brought high wind and heavy rain, knocking out power for some rural residents.

However, the second storm brought even higher wind and a torrential downpour, along with thunder and lightning, and the hydro flickered several times in Kincardine but remained on.

Friday was also the hottest, most humid day of the summer, prompting heat warnings due to the insufferable hot, hazy, humid conditions.

The weather is expected to clear by Saturday, bringing cooler temperatures and sunshine.

Meanwhile, on a sunnier note, Carl Doerr of Walkerton is richer after winning the Kincardine and Community Health Care Foundation 50-50 draw at Cruise Night in downtown Kincardine, Aug. 30. He won $1,230, and Paula Doerr donated $100 back to the hospital foundation.

A thunderstorm early Friday morning struck this tree in Tiny Tot Park, Kincardine, and split it all the way to the bottom (as indicated by the line on the tree trunk); the tree will have to be taken down which is why the road in that area is closed
