Tornado Touchdowns in Eastern Iowa

hardinconovtornado4There were a couple of tornado sightings just off to our west Monday.

Funnel clouds and tornadoes were reported Monday afternoon in Bremer, Butler, Grundy and Hardin counties, but no injuries were reported. The Butler County emergency manager says a tornado near Parkersburg pushed some buildings off their foundations.

There was no severe weather in the KMCH listening area.

National Weather Service meteorologist Craig Cogil says November tornadoes are unusual, but not unprecedented in Iowa. 41 tornadoes have hit Iowa in November from 1980 through 2015 – with nineteen of those touching down last year on Veterans Day.
