A thunderstorm packing high winds, rain and large hail blew through Muscatine about 5:30 p.m. Saturday, felling trees and causing damage to buildings, the National Weather Service, Davenport said.

Winds reached as high as 60 mph in some spots of the county, including Nichols, which is located on the western edge of Muscatine County, the weather service reported.

Hail was described as golf ball-size but in some locations was as large as 2 inches in diameter, according to the weather service.

Whiteside and Mercer counties in Illinois also were hit by the storms.

In Mercer County near the town of Reynolds, the weather service said there were reports of limbs and whole trees blown down and that a roof was torn off a hog confinement building and was wrapped around a tree. A roof also was ripped off a barn.
