Episode Narrative A strong disturbance moved through central Iowa during the late afternoon and evening of June 26 brought showers and severe thunderstorms to portions of central and eastern Iowa. Widespread tree damage occurred across Van Buren County. One to one and a half inches of rain fell across northeastern Missouri and southeastern Iowa which lead to some flash flooding and flooding.

During the late evening of June 26 and early morning of June 27, another line of severe thunderstorms moved into parts of southeast Iowa, northeast Missouri, and west central Illinois, as a warm front lifted northward into the area. Winds in excess of 70 mph and torrential rains accompanied the storms. In addition to widespread tree damage, some buildings collapsed in Keokuk, IA. Rainfall totals of 1.5 to 3.5 inches fell along and south of a line from Fairfield, IA, to Galesburg, IL which resulted in some flash flooding and flooding. Some of the higher totals were 3.30 inches 1 mile south of Kahoka, MO, 3.31 inches in Memphis, MO and 3.50 inches 6 miles west northwest of Burlington, IA. Rainfall amounts quickly tapered off to between a trace and a third of an inch across areas to the north.
Event Narrative Wind gusts estimated to be 65 to 70 mph were observed in Bowen, IL around 146 am CDT June 27. A power outage was also observed in Bowen and Augusta.
