  • Photo

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa It was another Sunday with severe weather in Iowa, with storms bringing hail and wind to parts of Wapello, Jefferson, Keokuk, Washington and Henry counties.

Sunday afternoon a severe thunderstorm moved through southeast Iowa, triggering five tornado warnings from the National Weather Service. No tornadoes were reported, but radar indicated rotation within the storm after a couple of funnel cloud reports.

Damage reports from in and around Fairfield indicated nickel to Ping-Pong ball-szied hail.

The storm in the early afternoon is the first of two possible rounds of severe weather on Sunday. The second round is expected to start after sunset Sunday evening.

On Sunday, April 27th, two tornadoes moved through far southeast Iowa. Two people died in Kinross as a result of an EF-1 tornado, according to an initial storm survey by the National Weather Service.

Two weeks earlier, a tornado was confirmed on the ground in Johnson County near Lone Tree. No damage or injuries were reported as a result.
