Breaking news is just coming on TV about a major tornado that's hit Marshalltown, Iowa with catastrophic damage. Bad news is expected to come out of this. Several other towns have been hit also. Here's hoping the damage is just to things and the people are alright....Crap! There's a survey before you can read the link. Looking for another one.

Was able to open it without the survey. No one else has it on their websites yet.

Do they normally have such extreme weather this early/late in the seasons?

Just now, and then said:

ABC World News Tonight said it has something to do with an abnormally strong jet stream. Came on as breaking news. Glad that first link from Omaha decided to open because I can't find anything else right now. Not up on websites yet.

Just found this one. The National Weather Service was taken totally by surprise. It seems 4 super cells formed and they were not expected. They are still under a severe weather threat until 7-8 pm tonight. This reports damage in other towns.

KCCI has a live link going. This doesn't look good. I hope everyone is alright.

There's a couple of them going as you scroll down the page. Injuries have been reported in Pella. A Vermeer plant was hit there and there is also a report of a gas leak at the plant.

More news is being posted now. Injuries have been reported but saw nothing stating there were any deaths. Houses and cars have been destroyed. Thinking about all the people who were impacted by this today. This is devastating.
