"Catastrophic damage” was reported in Marshalltown, about 50 miles northeast of Des Moines.

It'll be a wet time as a storm system tracks from the coast of the Carolinas to New England. Washington and Baltimore may just get skirted.

Temperatures soared above 105 degrees Thursday, just a hair below the country's all-time record.
