Late Night Tornado Reports in Southwest Iowa

Untitled Strong storms took their time to take shape in the Upper Midwest, but they managed to get their act together eventually.  The first supercells developed in northern Kansas and made their way through southern Nebraska and southwest Iowa.  After reaching southwest Iowa close to 11pm, two reports of tornadoes came in to the National Weather Service in Omaha, NE.

The only report of damage came from Interstate 29 in western Iowa where some vehicles were blown off the road.  It will be up to the National Weather Service office to verify these tornado reports, but that will depend on whether any damage or a tornado path can be found.  We’ll of course let you know when/if that happens.

Otherwise, western Iowa saw some reports of 60mph winds and hail reports as high as 1.75” in diameter (ping pong sized).
