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.
