Restaurant owner: Iowa tornado damaged business

BELMOND, Iowa (AP) — The owner of a restaurant in northern Iowa says a tornado has “demolished” part of his business.

Duwayne Abel, owner of Cattleman’s Steaks & Provisions in Belmond, says a tornado swooped in Wednesday through his business’ parking lot. He says the south side of the building is “pretty much demolished.”

Abel says no one was in the restaurant when the tornado hit. He says his wife and an employee were able to get away and seek shelter in a basement.

The National Weather Service says emergency officials have reported damage in Belmond, but the extent of it is unclear.
