Mayor: Over half of Iowa town damaged by tornado

“It was huge, just huge,” said Thomas Mohrhauser, an attorney in the town of about 1,200 people. “It just kept getting bigger and bigger.”

Mohrhauser said the tornado appeared to be about a quarter-mile wide when it cut a northwest path through town Saturday evening.

Mayor Fred Standa said one side of town got hit worse than another, but overall he thought about 60 percent had been damaged. He estimated about 20 percent was “almost flat.”
