    So it looks like this may not be the last of it tonight in the Ames area?

    As a side note, how is it that an entity whose only job is to cover the weather be so terrible at all things related to covering the weather? Weather channel website and app both suck so many balls.

    Nope. Wife and kids sleeping in basement. I'm up watching 13 because of what's yet to come.

    I mean, if you look at the radar, it looks like it'll be storming all night. No idea how bad they'll be but there's been a few tornado warnings in the cells heading our way.

    This is why I only use weather.gov. NOAA & NWS are leaps and bounds better than TWC.

    I didn't watch the coverage on other channels, but I refuse to believe any local station's coverage comes close to WHO.

    Just checked the gauge, and this storm that just came through dumped about 1/2 inch of rain at our house, which is just north of Hy-Vee on Ankeny Blvd.

    Lightning, thunder, and precip. have settled down in Ames over the past 25 minutes. Looking at radar, we're in for another few rounds, though.

    I'm trusting you people to warn me about any imminent danger heading my way, don't fail me.

    KCCI: We haven't had time to check our Facebook or anything for leads. We'll go to the anchors and go check that.

    First time I heard a weatherman give up screentime for Facebook.
