Gated article, but confirmed, or radar indicated? Let's not pretend that 30, 40 or 50 years ago (or longer) they had the same level of ability to accurately count these things beyond looking at the damage.
I believe these are confirmed. NWS would send a survey crew to potential sites of tornadoes the next day to identify if a tornado did touch down and determine the path, severity, etc. With that said, a tornado from the 1950's may had gone unnoticed/uncounted if it happened in an open field with nobody around to see it. Radar would help the NWS office know if a storm had rotation and where the rotation was located to investigate potential tornado sites

Really slammed the brakes on any planting and there will be a lot of replant. Farming taking a major hit on these rains. Need about a week to dry out and get rid of these large ponds.

I would just plant in the water BC.

Because once the ponds dry out it has to mean we are in a historic drought.

Saw a few guys planting around here like April 12th-14th. Wonder how they are doing now.

Insane............epic...........historic. Mr. Hall must be all of 10 years old.

Plenty of radar returns with a hook like that with modern radar. Punch up El Reno, Oklahoma via 2013. Thing was almost 3 miles wide.

2024 is basically tornado alley being.........................tornado alley.
I’m surprised at the name of the town.

For eastern Iowa, we should’ve planted more. Like as much as possible. It’s at VE and looks pretty good
