A Look at Storm Impact Across the QCA

Posted: Updated:

Although we haven't heard any big reports of damage from it, the storm system that barreled through our area Monday did leave a big impression on many of us.

For some of us, this storm brought with it some photo-worthy hail.

In one picture sent into us from a TV-6 viewer in Morrison on Monday, the hail is dotting the surface of his deck. And, if you look closely, you can see even more hail coming down.

The size of that hail varied a good bit depending on where you live.

A viewer photo from Galesburg shows hailstones rivaling the size of a paper clip, while a picture sent to us from Lyndon, Illinois, shows that by the time the system arrived there, it was dropping pea-sized hailstones on the ground.

And even for those of us who didn't see any hail, Monday's weather meant business.

When the storms barreled through the Muscatine area around 4:15 p.m., they brought with them pouring rain.

Our crew on the scene just across the river in southern Rock Island County at the time said the rain was coming down so hard on the roof of the building they were in, the sound was almost deafening.

They also saw frequent flashes of lightning, some of which, they said, sounded like they were striking pretty close to them. And, they were dealing with strong winds that made the rain feel like it was blowing at them nearly sideways.

The rain came down very hard elsewhere in the QCA, too.

Our crews in Davenport said, from where they were standing during the downpour, cars were tough to see from less than 50 feet away.

And, after just a few minutes of hard rain, water was coming out of gutters on the street.

We received a number of reports of water pooling on the streets and in parking lots around our area.

One viewer photo, taken at the corner of Eastern and Kimberly in Davenport, shows a large amount of water covering the roadway.

Another photo taken on Central Park Avenue shows a giant splash created by cars driving through deep water that had pooled on that road.

Thank you to everyone who sent in their photos from Monday's storms.
