Ed’s Weather Journal
Our hearts and prayers are there for the people who are dealing with more devastation of tornadoes in the Oklahoma City area last night. As of Midnight…there were five fatalities reported. All those died in cars. Over 75,000 people were still without power. Many homes and business were destroyed in El Reno, OK. There were many reports of damaged and flooded buildings in downtown Oklahoma City.
We are going to see a much brighter weather picture. It will be cool through the weekend and dry for most of central Iowa.
There were a few isolated severe storms in northern Iowa…Hamilton, Hardin, Wright and Franklin Counties. It was still raining in those areas after Midnight.
Flooding will still be an issue. Make sure you do not drive through areas that are flooding…or take time to play or mess around in flooded streams, rivers and lakes.
