Tornadoes touch down in western Iowa


SIBLEY (KWWL) -- Extensive damage in western Iowa after at least three tornadoes touched down during storms Friday night.

One touched down about a mile west of Little Rock just before 10:00.

Another was spotted near Ashton, and a weather spotter reported one around 10:30 about a mile southeast of Sibley.

Our sister station in Sioux City reports there's lots of damage to homes and farms.

The Sibley fire chief says there were several reports of injuries in Osceola County.

In Lyon County, at least a dozen farms were damaged and a family was trapped in their basement under rubble near Little Rock for a time.

A representative with the National Weather Service is set to tour tornado damage Saturday.
