Damage assessment is getting underway this morning after two tornadoes touched down in northeast Iowa on Wednesday. Roger Valhollek, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, says most of the damage is minor, though a Fayette County barn lost its roof.
He says a couple of tornadoes touched down in Fayette County, while there was hail in central Iowa, but "most of the storms weren’t too strong." No injuries are reported.
The twisters were reported northwest of West Union and near Stanley. Valhollek says the storm system that brought the severe weather left behind cooler temperatures. More showers are expected today, tonight and tomorrow, with highs only in the 60s across Iowa’s northern half, with highs in the 70s for the southern half. That’s about ten degrees cooler than normal.
