Iowa Tornadoes

There are photos of yesterday's Iowa's tornadoes here.

Again yesterday, Doppler radar proved its worth. The tornado southwest of Des Moines did not have the traditional "hook" echo, yet we were able to warn of it because Doppler showed the rapidly rotating winds. There was damage from the tornado yet no injuries.

Video of one of the tornadoes from Stephen Locke. Terrific lighting!

And, here is video of the tornado NW of Winterset (the home of John Wayne) in Madison County (of bridges fame). It is the tornado we were tracking in the posting below.
