Tornado kills at least 7 in NE IA

An apparent long track tornado kills at least 7 just west of Cedar Falls, Iowa.

Atmospheric conditions came together over Iowa which produced an apparent long track tornado just west of Cedar Falls. Aplington, Parkersburg, and New Hartford were just a few of the towns impacted by this storm. 7 fatalities are being reported as of this writing, which is the highest number we’ve seen since the 1960’s. Per reports on the ground, their tornado sirens were sounded and are credited with saving even more lives. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected.
