News, Weather

June 11th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Severe thunderstorms Sunday evening and overnight, brought strong winds, some hail and much needed rain. Here in Atlantic, we received Nine-tenths of an inch of rain at the KJAN studios. Other areas of town reported 1.4-inches. Up at “The Valley,” (Highway 71/I-80), our spotter says she received .8″ of rain. An unofficial rainfall report from Walnut indicated 1.9-inches.

Harlan reports .91-inch, and Massena 1.53-inches. In Shenandoah, 1.84-inches of rain fell. Anywhere from 2-to 4-inches of rain fell over portions of western and northwestern Pottawattamie County last night, as storms continued to train and reform over an area stretching from the Interstate 80/680 split, southwest to Council Bluffs.

The storms also brought some unwanted hail. The National Weather Service says nickel-sized hail fell at around 10:30-p.m. in Council Bluffs. Strong winds toppled a power pole north of Atlantic along Olive Street, near Chicago Road, just after 8-p.m., Sunday. The pole fell across Olive Street, blocking the road for about 30-to 40-minutes.
