Got an IM from my brother tonight while watching the game.
Major storm damage in the Iowa City area. Anamosa got hit bad, as well, where they have called out the Red Cross… someone must have lost their home.
Iowa City Menards had a roof collapse. University Heights homes damaged. I’m sure more stories will come out by tomorrow morning.
Probably about four confirmed tornados since about 7:30ish.
It’s spring time in the midwest. A far cry from the constant rain that we’ve had in Vancouver all day long.
To tell you the truth, it’s kind of a rush. Big, rolling storms in the Iowa countryside. I kinda miss it.
Update: The Iowa City Press Citizen has a story about the big storm. Also check out their site for photos. You can also check out the Cedar Rapids Gazette Online for their coverage.

This destruction is absolutely amazing. I just looked at this picture http://www.uiowa.edu/homepage/photos-4-13-14-06/gallery-3-day/pages/04-14-Day-14.htm for a good 5 seconds before I realized what it was. That is the Happy Joes right behind where we used to live. Scary.
