    So...the radar doesn't look very good

    The state is currently being swallowed by a line of storms that stretches from border to border. Any update out of Western Iowa?

    Storm came through early this morning. Sounds like it is dying down until early-mid afternoon where some storms will start showing up in areas. Then early this evening it is expected to be widespread storms in the area here.

    The Omaha storm dropped one inch hail along northern edge at about 4:00 this morning. 30-40 mph winds are expected prior to major events later today.

    We are under the gun in the Twin Cities today...heavy rain, strong winds, hail, tornadoes, flash flooding.

    Re: So...the radar doesn't look very good

    I am soon going to Rochester MN today for the big Animals concert in Mayo Park in Rochester - should be a cyclonic event..tomorrow I was headed to Mount Olympus at Wisconsin Dells (just after 245 acre Lake Delton was inadvertently drained from the recent flooding). Should be a weather event trip all the way. Then I visit my Mom in Cedar Falls which is being flooded today. Brings back memories years ago when I twice sandbagged on the Cedar River in Waterloo. I was hoping they had fixed their flood problems. This must be bigger than a 100 year event at this point. Yes, I am locked into the motels already....looks like the 30 SW mph wind will blow my car to Rochester today.

    Lake Okoboji --- Dickinson County

    It's 8AM and the sky is so black the street lights have come back on in Arnolds Park.

    "White caps" are breaking over the dock and it's coming down so hard you can't even see across the bay.

    Major flooding coming to the Nishnabotna River, especially downstream at Hamburg. I-29 may be flooded in the area if this keeps up.

    Re: So...the radar doesn't look very good

    Driving to KC yesterday, I was shocked to see how much land was underwater in the Missouri River Valley. Looking more like La Nina of August 1993. Small areas of that flood approached a 1000 year flood event rating in 1993.
