In an effort to connect Red Lake, Standing Rock and other Nations throughout the upper Midwest with electronic vehicle charging stations, Minneapolis-based Native Sun Community Power Development and over two dozen of its partners will make use of a recently awarded $6.67 million from the U.S. Department of Energy Vehicle Technologies Office.
According to the National Weather Service report, a supercell thunderstorm formed in northwest Beltrami County around 4:30 p.m. July 26 and intensified as it tracked southeastward across Lower Red Lake and Red Lake Nation. It then split into two storm cells as it neared the southern edge of the lake and formed one or more tornadoes over the lake, which then tracked onshore.
David Brian Donnell Jr., 28, has been charged with five federal counts following a shooting incident on Tuesday, July 27. In the incident, 37-year-old Red Lake Police Officer Ryan Bialke died on the scene.
