Leaving our hotel Colby Kansas, we decided to leave todays risk and head North to Iowa positioning for Mondays significant potential over Nebraska/Iowa. An all-day drive took us out of Kansas, through Nebraska and eventually along I-80 to Lincoln where we exchanged the rather battered and bruised Jeep following yesterdays barrage of Hail.

Along the way we saw town after town severely damaged by the straight line winds of upto 115mph the previous night. Whilst tornadoes generate a localised path of destruction, these straight line wind events can go on for 100s of miles and leave a huge trail of destruction.

Crossing the Missouri we entered Iowa and headed North along its huge flood plain. Our final destination for the day was Sioux City, Iowa.

Photos for the day can be found on the [url="https://www.dropbox.com/sh/htak3nmei1ga7c3/AABtqC4jOXJoJ8Xf7w2pj7B8a/Day%202%20-%20June%2015th"]Dropbox Gallery[/url]
