Severe thunderstorms and one confirmed tornado ripped through Southeast Iowa late Thursday night and into early Friday morning, leaving damage in its wake.
The Henry County Sheriff's Department confirmed around 10:30 p.m. Thursday that the area around Wayland, Iowa had sustained the most damage from the night's storms.
Our cameras were out in Wayland and the small nearby town of Noble into the early morning hours Friday ,where a turkey farm completely collapsed. Dozens of workers were on scene working with the turkeys and trying to clear the debris.
Several media outlets and storm chasers were on-hand, watching the severe weather continue to roll through and surveying the damage in the area.
We will have more on the extent of the storm damage throughout the day Friday and as it becomes available from local officials.
