A rarity, as storms that produced tornadoes Monday weren’t ‘true thunderstorms’

Des Moines, Iowa – At least five tornadoes touched down in Iowa Monday.


That’s meteorologist Todd Shea.

He works in the National Weather Service office in La Cross, Wisconsin, which tracked some of Monday’s storms.


The National Weather Service has confirmed 52 tornadoes in eight states Monday. Two “sizable” tornado tracks have been established in northeast Iowa.


There was also tornado damage in or near Lime Springs, Elma, Cantril and in southeast Iowa’s Des Moines County.

Howard County Officials say the roofs were damaged in several homes near Riceville and Saratoga and a hog confinement was destroyed.
