With daylight comes the opportunity to survey the full damage of the storms that spawned several tornadoes throughout Iowa and Illinois on Friday.
Here are some of the photos and video from Saturday morning in Grand Mound and Charlotte.
Local 4 News visited a badly damaged farm that sits in Clinton County between DeWitt and Charlotte. Several large buildings on the property were destroyed. The house, though, remains fine other than some missing shingles. The woman who lives there farmed since 1964 on the property with her husband, who is now deceased.
While the storm destroyed the buildings, she took a meal and her cell phone and found a spot in the basement to ride out the storm. Insurance adjusters already visited Saturday to total up the damage.
