Severe weather brings hail, wind damage

Posted:

Thunderstorms rolled across eastern Iowa Wednesday evening.  It brought hail many areas.  Hail was penny to quarter size in Cedar Rapids.  In northeast Cedar Rapids, more than five thousand customers were without power.

During the downpour, on Boyson Road in Cedar Rapids, a semi even overturned from the high winds on the bridge over Interstate 380, creating a traffic mess.

A KWWL viewer captured home video south of Hudson near Highway 175 which looked like a funnel cloud.  The area wasn't under a tornado warning, but our weather team advised viewers in that area to take cover.
