Noisy Afternoon in the City

Not a whole lot of severe weather in the area Friday.  But did get a bit of a jolt while shooting some storm footage.  Take a look at the video to the left.  Just as I was cleaning off my lens a sudden bright flash blinded me and moments later an extremely loud clap of thunder followed.

I can certainly tell you the tape does not do it justice.  My ears were ringing for a bit after this.  But fortunately I wasn’t struck.  As for the rest of eastern Iowa, not much damage to report except for a number of planes tossed around at the Dubuque Airport.

It’s likely the National Weather Service will investigate that damage report, which might have been caused by a downdraft or microburst.
