PHOTOS: Storm damage seen across Siouxland on a beautiful Father's Day


Strong and severe thunderstorms moved across the viewing area Saturday evening and into the night.

These thunderstorms created quite the rage dumping over 6 inches of rain in some locations as well as ping-pong ball sized hail.

The Sioux Gateway airport picked up 6.15” which is the second highest 24 hour rain total. The highest record is 6.34” set back in July 16th and 17thof 1996.

Speaking of high rainfall totals, there is a flood warning for the Big Sioux River at Hawarden and Akron, Rock River at Rock Rapids and Rock Valley, and Little Sioux River at Spencer. There could be minor flooding at the West Fork Des Moines River at Estherville.

Strong winds did accompany these storms causing damages to property in some locations. Thundershowers lingered into Sunday morning but it didn’t last for long.

We have cleared out our skies for Father’s Day and afternoon temperatures topped out in the 70s and 80s. Sunday night will remain dry with partly cloudy skies and the overnight low will drop into the 60s.

Monday will start off dry and afternoon temperatures will be in the 80s. As of right now, all of Siouxland is in a slight risk for severe weather for Monday afternoon/evening.
