Thunderstorms spawned 30 tornadoes, and there were 158 reports of large hail and damaging winds. A strong (F-3) tornado caused five million dollars damage at Corning, IA, and a powerful (F-4) tornado caused five million dollars damage at Traer, IA.

The third tornado injured six persons who were trying to escape in vehicles. A woman was “sucked out” of a truck and said that at one time she was “airborne, trying to run but my feet wouldn’t touch the ground”. She also saw a live deer “flying through the air”.
