Grundy Center, Iowa (AP) – Authorities say tornadoes have damaged some buildings in northeast Iowa.
Funnel clouds and tornadoes were reported Monday afternoon in Bremer, Butler, Grundy and Hardin counties, but no injuries were reported. Butler County emergency manager Mitch Nordmeyer says a tornado near Parkersburg pushed some buildings off their foundations.
National Weather Service meteorologist Craig Cogil says November tornadoes are unusual but not unprecedented in Iowa. Service data say 41 tornadoes have hit Iowa in November from 1980 through 2015. Nineteen tornadoes were reported in the state on Nov. 11 last year.
