Tornado Claims the Life of an Iowa Woman
The first Tornado Warning of the year in Iowa was issued Monday evening in far southwestern Iowa. There was another Tornado in Adair around 1:30 Wednesday morning. Sadly, one person died from this twister. It’s the first death from a tornado in Iowa in 5 years. (It's believed that it was an EF-2)
This year's first warning was the second latest into the year since 1986. The only year with a later date was 1993. Of course, 1993 was the epic flood year for the state.
May is generally the second highest month of tornadoes in Iowa. June is #1.
