Thunderstorms rumbled across much of Iowa last night, with heavy rain, hail and high winds. National Weather Service meteorologist Frank Boksa says the powerful storms caused a mess in several areas, including Kossuth County.
There were winds up to 60 miles-an-hour with several cars being blown into ditches. In Boone, there’s lots of tree damage and power outages and a barn had its roof blown off.
In Ames, there were garage doors blown in and gutters torn off of houses. No injuries are reported. Boksa says there’s a chance of more severe weather today and tomorrow.
