Severe Storms Rip Through the Quad Cities Causing Damage and Power Outages
Thursday night brought some pretty severe weather to the Quad Cities Area. There have been reports of damaged roofs and downed power lines and trees.
There was an estimated 20,000 MidAmerican Energy customers left without power as the storms rolled by. Crews worked overnight to get power back on, everything should be restored by noon today.
Parts of the QC were under a tornado warning late into last night. The National Weather service will have crews in the area today to figure out if a tornado actually touched down.
Here's footage of some damage left by the storms on Tanglefoot Lane in Bettendorf. Make sure to take note of the transformer that caught on fire.
