(ABC 6 News) - Alden Conger was hit particularly hard by the storms that moved through the area late Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning.

The owner of Lakeside Auto confirmed to ABC 6 News this morning that his business' roof was blown off the building.

Meanwhile, the Alden Conger High School Marching Band Director, Craig Marks, says power lines are down throughout the area and that the high school didn't have electricity as of 8:45 Wednesday morning. He has since canceled band practice for Wednesday.

ABC 6 News has also received multiple reports of power outages in the northern Albert Lea area.

In Austin, Turtle Creek was put into a Flood Watch just before 1 am. The Oakland Street underpass has also been blocked off in anticipation of flooding.

In Dodge County, Sheriff Jim Jensen tells ABC 6 News that a portion of County Road 4 is gone. He says it was washed out about a mile and a half east of Highway 56. Jensen says barricades were posted last night, but blown away by the latest storms. He says someone actually drove through the washed out are this morning, but he's not sure how they made it.
