Severe Weather Hits Parts Of KELOLAND

August 21, 2014, 6:42 PM by Grant Smith

Severe Weather Hits Parts Of KELOLAND

Parts of KELOLAND received severe damage from Wednesday's storms.

The atmosphere was locked and loaded for severe weather in central and eastern KELOLAND. Luckily, the showers in the morning used up a good portion of the energy and mixed the atmosphere just enough to limit any lift to allow severe storms to develop. However, some areas of KELOLAND did receive severe weather.

The National Weather Service in Rapid City received seven reports of golf ball sized hail from the storms in the northwest. As those storms moved in the Aberdeen area, the National Weather Service received two reports of 1" hail and two reports of heavy rain that caused flash flooding.  As the leftovers from the morning showers faded out, the leftover energy allowed the storms to explode and caused damage in northern Iowa.  Spirit Lake reported most of the town without power Thursday morning.

Stay tuned to KELOLAND Weather as more showers and thunderstorms are forecasted for the weekend. And don't forget to like the Storm Center on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to stay up date and get live storm updates.  You should also download the Storm Tracker app to keep on top of weather changes.
