Severe storm leaves trail of damage

A line of severe thunderstorms that plagued eastern Iowa Sunday evening, June 29 left behind some tell-tale destruction in Waukon and the surrounding area. The National Weather Service declared a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Allamakee County at around the 9 p.m. hour for the storm that produced brief torrential rain, reported quarter-size hail and high winds, including some straightline winds believed to be responsible for much of the damage left in the storm's wake. Much of that damage included downed trees, such as this series of trees pictured at right on the Makee Manor property north of Waukon along Highway 9 that also took down a power line pictured in the center of the photo. This photo and more can be viewed in the Photo Gallery.
