Clearing trees
Members of the Iowa National Guard in eastern Iowa this week assisting with cleanup operations following a severe wind storm in order to make way for utility companies to reconnect power. Wide spread power outages were due to the weather phenomena “Derecho” that is characterized by the large geographical area of damage caused by extremely high winds that uprooted trees and caused wide spread structural damage.
