TODDVILLE, Iowa - Residents in Toddville are starting to clean up after storms hit Eastern Iowa Monday afternoon.

Cody Morris said he was outside with his father when skies turned black.

“Clouds were coming through fast,” Morris said. “We noticed something up in the sky started forming and then as soon as we got inside the house started shaking.”

When the shaking stopped Morris and his family came up from the basement.

Their neighborhood was destroyed.

“We just looked outside and saw everything was everywhere,” he said. “Trees uprooted and power lines down.”

One resident said every person in the town either had a tree ripped from their yard or on top of their home.

Jeremy Ketelsen, the Monroe Township Fire Department Chief, said crews immediately responded to the area.

“We've experienced a lot of downed power lines, a lot of street closures,” he said.

Some in the area were trapped inside their homes until workers could clear branches away.

Officials also reported a gas leak on Toddville Road but crews were able to shut off the gas source immediately.

“We're going to get power lines secured and we'll have to gain access to homes,” Chief Ketelson said. “There will be a lot of clean up yet to do.”
