Ames
Temp has dropped 7 degrees in Ames, torrential rain and high winds. Much lighter to the west/southwest. Think we lost KCCI, at least from my TV.

Ankeny
Interesting, I live a mile west just down 44 from there and all we had was heavy rain and the wind picked up briefly but not more than a couple minutes.
Yeah looks like it passed right by me in NW Ankeny, but didn't see anything. Did get really windy here as well.

Not much rain in Urbandale this storm compared to this morning, but some down draft winds were bending the neighbors trees while at the same time to the west you could see clear skies.

Really dangerous looking North of metro, thoughts and prayers!

Is this wave going to be the end of things in the metro and elsewhere?
