Wednesday night the Dodge County Emergency Manager said the owner of another turkey farm about two miles down the road was inside one of the buildings as the roof started to peel away.

An hour south in Carpenter, Iowa another farm was hit by the storm. Tin silos were twisted and large trees fell down throughout the yard. Closer to town neighbors helped cut down a tree that had fallen on a house.

The national weather service confirmed an EF1 tornado in McGregor, Iowa. The NWS also confirmed wind gusts of up to 70 miles per hour and higher between Claremont and West Concord.
