Storm clean-up in Dubuque County

Posted:

DUBUQUE COUNTY (KWWL) -- Dubuque county saw winds as much as 80 miles per hour Friday morning. 

Gary Rahe saw the damage happen right in his backyard.  The winds blew metal pieces into fields, downed trees and left a lot of debris in his yard.  Friday afternoon neighbors helped clean the mess up.

"When we get done here we're going to help my other neighbors, and go 'till we get it all cleaned up," Rahe said.  "Hopefully it doesn't happen again later today."

Rahe says he also lost power for a few hours after the storm.  Clean-up could take all weekend.
