If you happen to be traveling today across the US we could see some strong storms in #Iowa, heavy rain in the northeast with a lot of heat in the Central Plains. Travel safely! pic.twitter.com/4dK2Zpayde— WBIR Weather (@WBIRWeather) September 18, 2018
The account warned that a tornado was possibly approaching, but not expected. The weather channels confirmed strong winds and noted that 24-hour long heavy rains would very likely hit Iowa and Cedar River basins.
Eyewitness reports and live feeds
An Iowa resident who goes, @EllieODaire, claimed that there wasn't any storm scare in her location.
No worries, I'm not home yet, so I was nowhere near the tornado that hit close to there today. The only storms Maxwell and I have been battling are the swarms of bugs blanketing Iowa and Missouri right now. 😂— Ellie O'Daire, slow teleporter (@EllieODaire) September 18, 2018
She added with some humor that they had been besieged by a "swarms of bugs blanketing Iowa and Missouri."
But, she appears to be alone as videos on Snapchat show that the rains hitting Iowa hard with residents afraid that this could become a full-blown tornado.
This comes as reports insist Hurricane Florence is weakening. Over the weekend, Florence wrecked havoc in North and South Carolina and early this week, a passing tornado touched parts of Virginia leaving destruction in its wake.
