Wall cloud

Severe storms over Iowa City

I took these pictures right outside of my office in downtown Iowa City. The clouds were AMAZING to watch! They moved very quickly, and were very low hanging at times. It was very black and behind it, it almost looked green at times. It also got very still outside. I wish I had been off of work today, as I can just imagine how these would have looked from my back yard out in the country in East Johnson County.

There was A LOT of tree damage in north Iowa City and power outages after this storm rolled through as well.
