DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Severe thunderstorms were expected throughout the midsection of the country on Saturday, but many in Iowa are likely happy to see the rain after a summer of drought. The National Weather Service says much of the state will get at least some rain, with some areas in south central Iowa getting as much as 2 inches by today (Sunday). Iowa has struggled with record drought this year. As late as Thursday, three-fourths of the state remained in extreme or exceptional drought — the two worst classifications.
