MELVIN, Iowa (AP) — The National Weather Service is confirming two tornadoes struck Friday night in northwestern Iowa.
Sioux Falls meteorologist Matthew Dux says an EF-1 tornado with sustained 90 mph winds touched down in cropland around the Iowa-Minnesota border just south of Bigelow, Minnesota, around 7:50 p.m. Friday.
He says another tornado hit about an hour later around Melvin, damaging crops and at least one farm. Dux says no one was injured.
He says a weather service survey team was at Melvin on Saturday to gather more information about the strength of that tornado.
