NWS: Tornado touched down in eastern Iowa

News, Weather

April 9th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Severe weather making its way across eastern Iowa has produced at least one tornado. The National Weather Service confirms that a tornado was located around 5:25 p.m. Thursday in rural Donahue, south of DeWitt. It was reportedly moving east at 50 mph toward Clinton but wasn’t expected to continue into Illinois.

Meteorologist John Haase says there have been no reports of structural damage. He says the tornado caused some blown-over semitrucks and uprooted or damaged trees. Hail as large as ping pong balls was predicted in the area. Tornado warnings have been cancelled in Clinton and Scott counties. Several eastern Iowa counties remained under a tornado watch until 8 p.m.
