Episode Narrative Strong low pressure tracked from western Kansas to western Wisconsin on April 24-25, 2008. A warm front moving across the region brought heavy rain and flash flooding to areas north of I-80. Then an impressive cold front swept across eastern Iowa and northwest Illinois. This front triggered severe thunderstorms which produced two tornadoes, large hail and damaging winds.
Event Narrative A trained spotter reported creeks and rivers bankfull with some smaller streams out of their banks. Some farm fields were also flooded.
