near tornado storm knocked out power in Iowa
460,000 out of power here. Just cut off a big limb that landed on my place, somehow it didn't manage to even damage a single shingle.

mini doom?

apparently power is out in many counties. folks seem to think power will magically kick back on in a few hours, I doubt it - probably going to be a few days to a week minimum. probably a substation that a tree flew into somewhere.

yeah somehow most of my neighborhood got off easy. im not trying to go out site seeing, traffic is backed up, trees down, traffic lights out and no one directing traffic so its a free for all.

but im surprised i expected a lot more down trees in my neighborhood since the ash bore beetles have weakened a ton of ash trees around here that they are slowly removing.

tornado sky is so strange. it's not like a dark cloud, all ominous - it's more like a pale straw colored sky, almost dark green. very strange, quite ominous.

We went through this 7 years ago. It touched down in front of my middle daughters house, which is right across the alley from my house. Go to the 3:40 mark.

Re: near tornado storm knocked out power in Iowa
I'm just North of Des Moines. The headline should read hurricane force winds. There was a 15 minute warning in a normal day. Sirens went off. Then a hurricane came through and knocked out 100% of the power. Trees down. Traffick lights broke. And was gone in 30 minutes. The storm warning said 80mph winds, mobile homes WILL BE damaged. There was no cell service for 12 hours.

I have pics I will upload when I get a decent charge.

Are those high winds flattening the corn fields? Does anyone else here watch the Cole the Cornstar channel on youtube?

Another youtube channel from Iowa that I enjoy very much is Junkyard Digs.

Hope everyone is safe and you get your electricity back soon.
