A tornado touched down in a rural part of south-central Iowa Tuesday evening, causing damage to several farming operations.

Jeff Anderson, Marion County Emergency Management Director, tells Brownfield the twister developed near Pleasantville around 7 p.m.

“We’ve seen some farm ag buildings that had some damage,” he said, “but unfortunately, a couple of them were completely destroyed.”

He says damage assessments continue.
