We stayed on the patio and watched the clouds. By 5:30 we heard that a tornado had touched down in Ringgold County north of Mt. Ayr. Kari & Ken's wish for a BIG thunderstorm had been answered.
It was such a beautiful morning. Bud suggested we drive down toward Mt. Ayr to see the damage. Most of it was located on two farms. This one on the west side of Hwy 169 had the most extensive losses. The top picture is of a cattle feeding area while this one shows the silos and areas close to the house.
North of the above pictures and on the east side of the road, another farm lost the house roof and their barn. Luckily no one was injured at either location.
I believe our Oregon kids are going to take home some interesting stories and pictures of their Iowa vacation.
