Iowa is still cleaning up a week after a rare and violent storm called a derecho -- which is a storm system with straight line winds in excess of 57 mph though sometimes up to 100 mph that can create hundreds of miles of damage.

Though a federal emergency declaration has been approved and some aid is on the way, thousands of Iowans are still without power, dozens are residing in shelters, and an estimated 10 million acres, or nearly a third of the state's crop land was damaged, so let's put the spotlight on the state this morning.
