Winds above 50 mph howl out of the north as a gust front moves through Center Point, Iowa around 5:45 PM on Friday, June 18, 2010. The clouds were churning in this view looking northwest from Rydell Chevrolet just off Exit 35 on Interstate 380. I had earlier set up spotting position just northwest of Marion, Iowa when I received information that conditions north of the town of Toddville were more favorable, so I set off on a quick chase to catch the storm in its prime. The severe weather eventually found its way to my former position to the south, affecting all of the Cedar Rapids metro area.
