A major storm left a lot of the state without power Monday. National Weather Service meteorologist Jeff Zogg, says it was a phenomenon known as a derecho.

 

The storm got going late Monday morning  and made its way across the state.

 

According to Zogg. Winds were reported as high as 100 miles-an-hour and they knocked down trees, blew over vehicles, and left thousands without power.

He says there was a lot of tree damage, roof damage and that sort of thing. Zogg says there were some reports of hail and lots of rain with this storm.

He says a derecho doesn’t happen that often — but they leave an impression.

 

At one point more than 250-thousand people were without power across the state. The Iowa D-O-T warned that many roads, highways and interstates were impassable.
