    PANORA, Iowa (AP) Preliminary data shows an EF-2 tornado touched down in central Iowa during severe weather that hit swaths of the state.

    The National Weather Service says a line of thunderstorms produced at least one tornado Sunday night that hit the community surrounding Lake Panorama in Panora. Officials are still surveying damage to determine if other tornadoes were recorded.

    The tornado reached 115 mph and was first recorded south of Guthrie Center before it traveled more than 16 miles northeast. It went across Lake Panorama and dissipated near Yale.

    Officials in Lake Panorama say the tornado destroyed eight condominiums and damaged about a dozen other homes. No injuries were reported.

    More severe weather was expected in Iowa later Monday, with thunderstorms and potential flash flooding.
