Homes and cars are damaged, fields of crops flattened and hundreds of thousands are without power after a derecho raced across parts of the Midwest Thursday.
The line of severe thunderstorms roared across the region with winds that gusted up to 90 mph.

This Dercho is fresh on the minds of Iowans with major damage back in August 2020. Hopefully, this time, drought-easing rains will offset in most areas, major crop damage.
Net, net over the next 2 weeks, drought-easing rains will prevent the 2023 corn and soybean crop from being a disaster due to the drought.
