DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Officials say a wind gust of 95 mph was recorded near a small northwest Iowa city where there’s also reported damage to properties and trees.

The National Weather Service says straight line winds associated with thunderstorms moved through an area near Sheldon early Monday. A hangar at the local airport was destroyed.

Officials say a survey of the area turned up damage at two farmsteads and numerous trees. There are no reports of injuries.

Weather officials say large hail and damaging winds are possible in other parts of Iowa Monday afternoon and into the evening as thunderstorms continue to move through the state. Thunderstorms in southeast Iowa will pose the biggest threat.

The forecast doesn’t rule out possible tornadoes, and heavy rainfall in some areas may produce flash flooding.
