The report says the tornado touched down southwest of Dubuque near the regional airport and caused damage to corn, trees and houses along its three tenths of a mile path. At the widest the tornado was 50 yards wide. Two houses had partial roofs removed and another sustained a hit from the crown of a pine tree that bowed in the side of the house.
Peak estimated winds were 100 miles-an-hour and the National Weather Service rated it an “EF-1”. No injuries were reported.
