Southeast Iowans, cleaning up from a stormy night, may be in for the second day of severe weather.
More than 1,000 Alliant Energy customers in the Burlington area remain without power as wind gusts exceeding 80 miles per hour flattened large trees, snapped utility poles, and down power lines.
In Keosauqua a 3-foot diameter tree blocks a city street. Power poles caught fire in Fort Madison.
Shingles are gone from buildings at a Burlington golf course and from homes in an Iowa City mobile home park.
The storms skirted south and east of central Iowa where many rivers have begun to recede but pummeled the southeast quadrant, where rivers continue to rise and flood surrounding areas.
Another round of storms predicted for Friday will track along a similar path.
