Sunday storm damage

A line of severe thunderstorms tracked through eastern Iowa Sunday afternoon and evening, leaving behind damage to trees, power lines and some homes.

    

   

There was a lot of energy built up during the day for these storms, thanks to high temperatures in the 90s and dew points in the 70s. Several of our towns reported 50 mph to nearly 80 mph wind gusts.

    

    

This caused dozens of reports of damage across eastern Iowa.

Several of those damage reports came out of the Independence area, with trees and power lines down.

We’ve become accustom to these views over the last couple weeks: shelf clouds. This is the leading edge of the storms which indicates the potential for gusty (sometimes damaging) winds.
