Residents in northwest Iowa are cleaning up this weekend after a series of strong thunderstorms knocked down tree limbs and caused power outages Friday night.

Sioux, Osceola, Dickinson, O'Brien, Cherokee and Clay counties are among the areas hit by high wind gusts and large hail.

The sheriff's offices in Dickinson and Osceola counties reported down tree limbs and power outages.

Alex Ferguson with the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls says wind gusts sometimes exceeding 60 mph were recorded in several counties.

The highest, at 67 mph, was recorded at 9:14 p.m. at the Spencer Airport.

Ferguson says golf-ball-sized hail was reported around 8 p.m. in Dickinson County.
