It seems like this is starting to become a weather blog, but things in Iowa have been crazy weather wise.  This photo of the Little Sioux Tornado (categorized an EF3) was taken by a Boy Scout that was near the Little Sioux Boy Scout Ranch in Western Iowa shortly before it hit the camp and killed four boy scouts there and hurting 48 others.

 

Wow.  Remember to pray for the families of those who died and pray for those who are recovering both physically and emotionally.

Correction:  Thanks to Chris who corrected the story behind this picture.  I didn’t mean to mislead anybody and I am happy to share this because I do want to be accurate.

I asked around on Twitter and found this was actually a photo in Orchard, IA (near Osage in N. Central Iowa) NOT of the Little Sioux tornado.

Photo and story in Mason City Globe Gazette.

2nd Correction: It isn’t even a tornado – check the link that J. Micheal left in his comment for the story.  It is still a sweet picture, and we still need to be in prayer.

  1. Yes the picture is awesome….Lori Mehman took it off her front porch in Orchard IA…..the cloud was full of hail and the tail came down and just that fast went back up….Orchard Iowa is only 7 miles from our home. We didn’t have any tornadoes that night but lots of golfball size hail and too much rain.
