A tornado killed multiple people in a small Iowa town as powerful storms swept through the Midwest. The tornado destroyed homes and businesses in Greenfield, smashed cars, and scattered debris across the landscape. Iowa police confirmed the fatalities during a news briefing on Tuesday night, but they could not specify the number of deaths.

Tornados, heavy rain, and power cuts also hit Nebraska, Illinois, and Wisconsin. Video footage showed the devastation across Iowa, including flattened buildings, overturned cars, and broken wind turbines. Greenfield, a town of 2,000 people located about 55 miles from Des Moines, endured the deadliest tornado.

Mary Long rode out the storm inside her Greenfield business and told the Associated Press, “I could hear this roaring, like the proverbial freight train, and then it was just done.” While her business was not severely damaged, she noted that other parts of town were not as lucky.

The storm damaged the town’s hospital, forcing the dozen injured people to seek treatment elsewhere. A “good portion” of Greenfield is devastated, Iowa State Patrol Sgt. Alex Dinkla told reporters on Tuesday night. He stated that the death toll is still unknown, adding, “We’re still counting at this time.” However, he noted that everyone who lives in the town appears to be accounted for.
