Midwestern residents began to clean up after tornadoes and severe storms slammed several states.
No major injuries were reported, but authorities say strong winds tore the roofs off buildings and left residents without power.
The National Weather Service in Davenport, Iowa, confirmed Thursday that a tornado touched down Wednesday in northeastern Iowa. Another tornado was confirmed Wednesday night about 30 miles southeast of Minneapolis.
The weather service also is investigating reports of tornadoes in Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana.
In Illinois, at least 19 people were hurt and dozens of homes and businesses destroyed. Officials say one was injured when the wind flipped a car and another was blown off his motorcycle.
