DES MOINES (AP) -

Severe storms swept across Iowa overnight, with heavy rains causing some flooding and strong wind gusts snapping tree limbs and affecting power lines.

One person was hit by lightning in the Denison area, but their condition has not been released.

Crawford County Emergency Management Coordinator Gregory Miller said several highways were covered at various points during the storm. Heavy rains broke through a farm retention dam in Denison, flooding Iowa Highway 39.

The Omaha World-Herald reported that Interstate 29 was closed when the roof and sidewall blew off a building and into a pickup pulling a trailer. Sioux City Police Sgt. Dane Wagner said the truck toppled, but no one was injured.
