  • Injuries reported after tornado slams Iowa factory

Emergency responders were attempting to get inside the damaged building to see if anyone was trapped.

Pictures from the damaged areas show trees crashed down on to roads and roof tiles ripped away from homes.

The Vermeer Corporation said that the severe weather hit multiple facilities at 4 p.m., when about 400 dealers and customers were on site as part of a 70th anniversary event.

Numerous injuries were reported in this city of about 27,000, 60 miles northeast of Des Moines, about 130 miles south of the Minnesota border.

"We went through a tornado and survived, " Moz said. He said there were minor injuries but no deaths, and officials were going door-to-door to check on residents.

Linda Parker, a spokeswoman for the Iowa Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, said seven people were treated at the scene with six taken to hospital.

The tornado hit as clothing shop owner Stephanie Moz, her husband and their 2-month-old baby were taking a lunch break in Marshalltown.

The central Iowa cities of Marshalltown, Bondurant and Pella were hardest hit.

One of the factory's several manufacturing buildings sustained extensive damage, with metal strewn across the parking lot and across the street into a cornfield.

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

Photos and videos posted by locals on social media show substantial damage to residential buildings and power lines.

National Weather Service Meteorologist Jeff Johnson in Des Moines says several tornadoes were confirmed but no serious damage was immediately reported.

Additional funnels were reported as the storm moved east of Des Moines past Altoona, Prairie City and Colfax.

One tornado slammed into an agricultural machinery plant in Iowa as some people were working, injuring at least seven people.

The tornado also hit the Vermeer plant near Pella, causing several injuries at the heavy equipment manufacturer. "If anything, we were expecting we could get some large hail, if strong storms developed".
