Meteorologists call it a super-cell, but to the rest of us, it’s a big, dark storm. One such super-cell spun off at least two tornadoes last night (Tuesday) in southwestern Iowa, as Jason Dineson reports:One tornado was reported on the ground near the town of Jacksonville in east-central Shelby County. The same tornado was spotted a short time later near Kimballton in Audubon County. No major damage and no injuries were associated with this tornado. Also in Audubon County, another tornado was spotted on the ground just south of Audubon. Again, no damage was reported. National Weather Service meteorologist Chuck Myers says they were tracking the so-called super-cell last night he says it produced short-lived weak tornadoes, but he says there was no damage reported.Myers says the storm system moved across western and central Iowa overnight.Extremely heavy rain fell in parts of west-central Iowa, which prompted the National Weather Service to post a flood watch through 9 A.M. Thursday, as more heavy rain is anticipated later today and through the overnight hours.
