Wall cloud east of Wellman

Tornado touches down east of Wellman

A massive dark cloud developed right over Wellman and moved slowly east exhibiting a lot of rotation. As it moved to the east of the town, parts of the wall cloud pulsed downward, finally resulting in dust or cloud/moisture being swirled from the ground up into the lowest hanging part of the wall cloud. The storm continued to track along Highway 22 towards Kalona.

Thank goodness for the Wellman Fire Department members protecting our community, I was shocked to hear that people went out of there homes when the sirens blew, The are supposed to take shelter.
