DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – The National Weather Service has confirmed one tornado in southeastern Iowa on Wednesday that injured a man.
The tornado hit Wednesday afternoon near Barnes City in Poweshiek County. The name and medical condition of the man injured was not immediately released. The tornado also damaged a farmstead in the area.
The National Weather Service says the tornado was among a spate of reported tornado sightings throughout the state on Wednesday.

Flash flood warnings followed as several inches of rain fell in those counties in to southern Jones County.
