Are you without power this morning?

1 - Overnight storms knocked out power to thousands of Iowa Quad Cities residents. A couple more rounds of thunderstorms are forecast for late in the day today and Saturday, but Father's Day should be quite nice. WQAD Meteorologist Eric Sorensen has your forecast details here.

2 - There are only 78 more sleeps until the Iowa Hawkeyes kickoff their 2017 football season. This year, the Tigerhawk mascot will adorn midfield at Kinnick Stadium for the first time. Details and scores when we do That Sports Thing at about 7:40am on The Morning KIIK Start.

3 - Listen this morning for your last chance to win two seats at the KIIK table for next Friday's It's A Mystery performance of Murder In the Double Wide at Skellington Manor in Rock Island. More entertainment news when we do That Hollywood Thing at around 8:40am on FM 104-9.

4 - I've also got a 4-pack of tickets to giveaway this morning for Tuesday night's concert featuring former Doobie Brothers member Michael McDonald at the iWireless Center. And every morning next week, you'll have a chance to call in and win tickets to see The Beach Boys on July 13 at the Adler Theatre from your Summer Concert Connection - the new KIIK 104-9.

Have a great Friday and a wonderful Father's Day weekend.

- Craig
