Episode Narrative A line of thunderstorms developed in western Iowa ahead of a trough of low pressure in the Central Plains on the afternoon of August 8th. Favorable conditions for severe thunderstorms extended east into southern Wisconsin, which allowed the thunderstorms to propagate through northeast Iowa. Strong winds were observed as these storms passed, which caused various amounts of damage across the area.
Event Narrative Several trees and power lines were blown down, causing a power outage. The outage affected Able and Essman Islands just north of the city of Guttenberg.
