Heavy Rain and Tons of Hail Hits Council Bluffs


COUNCIL BLUFFS, IA (KPTM)- Council Bluffs was saw lots of rain and hail Tuesday night.

The exit 55 ramp on the I-29 was completely flooded, and drivers could not get onto the interstate.

Hail was also coming down, and to avoid storm damage, drivers took shelter under a nearby car wash to stay safe.

Well we took shelter here in the car wash, we're trying to get as many cars in each bay as we could. We could see it approaching and then it just cut loose and it just rained and poured so hard you couldn't see twenty feet in front of you, quarter size hail coming down," said Dennis Bolender.

The storm damage continued across the river into the Omaha area as well.
