Spring 2008 has been the worst tornado season in decades, particularly for Iowa residents. On May 26th, a twister struck the Parkersburg area, killing at least seven people. With 205-mph winds, the tornado has been called the worst in more than 30 years.
Many Iowa families watched the destruction of their houses, barns, farm equipment and personal possessions in the recent storms. A few horses were also killed in the storms. At least two families have lost everything they owned in the terrible tornadoes.
