Wave of tornadoes sweep through Iowa
April 10, 2011 – DES MOINES, Ia. — Emergency crews early Sunday sifted through the wreckage left behind by a wave of tornadoes that swept across Iowa before midnight. One of the twisters caused enough damage to prompt Iowa Gov. Terry E. Branstad to issue a disaster proclamation in Monona County, according to a statement released by the governor’s office. The proclamation allows officials to use state funds to help. Authorities said the extent of the damage is unclear because the twister struck at night. Stefanie Bond, a public information officer for the state’s Homeland Security & Emergency Management Division, said the National Guard is in Mapleton. Bond also said that natural gas service has temporarily been shut off in the city. Amateur video recorded by storm chasers shows a large funnel cloud spinning across a flat terrain outside Mapleton. In the background, a passenger can be heard exclaiming, “It’s going to hit that town! … Mapleton’s in big trouble!” Bruce Spence, a Red Cross government liaison, told CNN that as of Sunday morning there had been no reports of deaths or injuries in Mapleton. However, the damage to the town was “extensive,” Spence said. “The whole town is without power. Main Street is a disaster,” Spence said. “They’ve shut down the town. There’s debris all over, trees are down.” “This isn’t going to get fixed soon,” Spence said. The National Weather Service in Des Moines reported tornado sightings by storm chasers and trained spotters in as many as 11 towns and cities northern and west central Iowa over a four-hour period Saturday night. At least three of the twisters, including the Mapleton tornado, caused significant damage, according to Frank Boksa, a National Weather Service meteorologist. -CNN
