Funnel clouds are possible with Thursday’s storms

Faint funnel clouds are possible with a series of thunderstorms moving through eastern Nebraska to western Iowa, according to the National Weather Service.

If flooding occurs, do not drive over flooded roads or around barriers. “6 inches of water can knock a person over, 12 inches of water can move a car,” said meteorologist Caitlin Harvey.
