    Severe Weather 8/18

    Hail in Council Bluffs totaled my brother's car, and did a lot of damage to my dad's truck.

    Is this supposed to head to central Iowa?

    From the looks of the radar the main strength of the storm is going to head south and west of the metro area.

    Hopefully most of the rain misses Ankeny/Mitchellville. Concrete sub decided to open up a **** load of footings knowing rain is coming...would like to get a big chunk poured out Friday.

    We had 1.5 inches of rain in a few hours, and the tree in my front yard got uprooted. Sounds like theres still more on the way. Looks like I've got something to do on my day off tomorrow.

    My aunt and uncle live in a town called Tennant by Avoca and they had baseball size hail. Broke windows in their house, ruined siding, etc.

    My sister called saying she had softball sized hail in her area of Council Bluffs. I'll see if I can get some of her pictures posted here.

    They haven't had a chance to fully assess the damage, but it sounds like my sister and brother-in-law may have to get a new roof on their house that was replaced just 4 years ago.
