Injuries were reported at the Vermeer Corporation facilities in Pella, according to Iowa Homeland Security and Emergency Management.

The tornado hit in the town of Pella, about 40 miles (64 kilometers) southeast of Des Moines. The National Weather Service warned of "catastrophic damage," reporting that tops of buildings were gone. All 40 of the patients at UnityPoint Health were being transferred to the health system's larger hospital in Waterloo as well as one in Grundy Center, she said.

The Marshalltown hospital's emergency room remained open to treat patients injured in the storm, Varcoe said.

Marshalltown experienced overturned and missing vehicles, damaged buildings, and downed trees and utility lines, Omaha's WOWT reported.

The area is under a tornado watch until late Thursday.

Moz says she heard a storm siren and her mother texted her to seek shelter, so she and her 2-month-old son, Fredy Jr., rushed to the basement.

She says the storm broke out the shop's window, ruined the clothing and hats they had on display and destroyed her husband's vehicle, but she's relieved.

Trump says looks forward to second Putin meeting

Farage described it as a well delivered speech but added: "it is hopeless to expect Mrs May to deliver on any of it". If 48 such letters are sent a vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister amongst Conservative MPs will take place.

Weather forecasters said the tornadoes formed suddenly and took them by surprise.

A tornado directly hit the Vermeer Mile and touched down numerous times from near Altoona and Bondurant all the way to northwest of Leighton Thursday afternoon.

The City of Marshalltown declared a State of Emergency around 6 p.m. Smith said his house and neighbourhood were not damaged, but much of downtown and surrounding homes have been. "It's just an absolute mess".

Shane Cox told television station KCCI-TV that some people from the plant were taken to a hospital, but he didn't know the extent of injuries or the number of people. The storm scattered huge sheets of metal through a parking lot and left one building with a huge hole in it. All had minor injuries and were released after treatment, Rhamy said.

The city had activated its tornado siren and most staff were in underground shelters when the storm hit, but huge sheets of metal were left scattered through a auto park, ripping a hole in the side of a building, overturning cars and piling them onto others. The county is running it's E911 operations out of the building after a gas leak and damage forced operators out of the Marshalltown Police Department building.

'This morning, it didn't look like tornadic supercells were possible, ' Krull said.
