Family’s Dash Cam of Derecho 100mph Storm in Grimes, Iowa on August 10, 2020

On August 10th, 2020, my wife (Brooke Porter) went to Grimes, Iowa to pickup something from Facebook marketplace. She was not aware of the incoming storm. Our dual dash cam picked up what happened. Thankfully, just a few scratches, broken glasses and a lost stuffed animal. She apologizes in advance for any illegal driving that occurred! 😬 She was using her phone for navigation – proof:
