2 homes in central Iowa damaged after storms


REINBECK, Iowa (AP) — Several tornadoes were reported, and at least two homes were damaged after a line of severe storms passed through central Iowa.

Meteorologist, Kurt Kotenberg says the National Weather Service received reports of tornadoes Sunday night in Grundy, Tama and Jasper counties.

He says the same possible tornado tracked through both Grundy and Tama counties, with a separate storm hitting Jasper County.

Chief Deputy Tim Wolthoff with the Grundy County Sheriff’s Office, says one home about a mile west of the town of Reinbeck suffered roof damage and another across the street sustained major structural damage. He says both were occupied, but no one was injured. The Weather Service may survey the area Monday.

The sheriff’s offices in Tama and Jasper counties had no reports of injuries or damage late Sunday.
