VIDEO: Winds thrash buildings, trailers during storms

Posted: Updated:
WAUKON (KWWL) -

Surveillance video shows the moment strong winds start to cause damage near Waukon during last night's severe storms.

The video was shot from a security camera outside the front of the Waukon Harley Davidson along Highway 9 as storms moved through Allamakee County last night. A time stamp on the video shows the video starting at 6:14 p.m. Wednesday. As winds and rain bear down, debris is seen blowing down the road while some sort of bin blows onto its side across the street of the camera, and parts of a roof are torn from a structure and carried away. Another camera also shows trailers owned by the Harley Davidson store being tossed around along the road. 

Waukon Harley Davidson's general manager tells KWWL that a lumber yard located across Highway 9 from his store is the business seen taking on damage during the video. He says his own store also has some damage after the storms, including a broken door and several destroyed trailers. A call to the business across the street was not answered.
