Storm Damage in town

As of today, 2 rounds of storms have come through my hometown (Knoxville, IA) and have brought high winds and heavy rains.

The first round of storms came barrelling through on Sunday night, while I was at work in Des Moines. (Gotta make that $$ some how
right? ;-)) The storms on Sunday night brought an estimated 70 mph wind gust through town, knocking down several tree limbs and also a few
whole trees in the process.

This morning’s storms brought heavy rain and that was about it. The
Schoolnet station
located on the west side of town, recorded 0.84″ of
rain in about an hour with this morning’s storms. Several streets
around the area were overflowing with water.
