May 2024 Has Been Active



This morning's storms in Nebraska and Iowa have been classified as a derecho.


The storms Friday morning were part of what is classified as a derecho. The storms began in western Nebraska and moved east through Iowa and into Illinois. This has extended 600+ miles. 

By definition, the swath of wind damage needs to extend at least 400 miles and is at least 60 miles wide.  The reports need to be wind gusts of at least 58 mph as well as several, well-separated 75 mph gusts. 

This is after the tornadoes that just came through Iowa.


The small community of Greenfield, Iowa, is reeling after an EF-4 tornado came through town, injuring at least 35 people and killing four. 

In total, five died as a result of the storms, including 46-year-old Monica Zamarron in Adams County. The identities of the deceased have not yet been released.

What was once a loving home for a single mother and her son is now nothing but a basement. 

Anna Larson and her son talked to Local 5 about their experience and how they plan to rebuild after the tornado. 

And the season is just starting too.  Ugh.
