Heavy rain and 1 25-inch diameter hail covered the ground northwest of Prineville, near the intersection of Highway 26 and Lone Pine Road. Heavy rain and quarter-sized hail also hit the Tumalo area.
Two trees fell and blocked a road near Wickiup Reservoir, among the many toppled trees reported in the region -- one that reportedly fell on a horse near Big Timber Drive in La Pine.
A 70-foot-tall tree was reported ablaze not far from Alfalfa Market Road east of Bend. The area had periods of time in the early afternoon when thunder rumbled almost continuously for several minutes.
There was a sunny break for an hour or so on Bend's north end before skies darkened and heavy rain and hail began pelting the area around 2:30 p.m.
