Episode Narrative A cold front moved across northern Iowa during the late afternoon and evening hours on May 25, triggering severe thunderstorms ahead of it. These storms produced significant tornado activity south of the area, but also generated large hail that ranged in size from pennies to as large as tennis balls east and north of the tornado tracks. The effects of a large tornado near Parkersburg and New Hartford, Iowa produced a considerable amount of debris in the air, as reported by spotters and the emergency manager in Fayette County.
Event Narrative Hail up to golf ball size fell near the Fayette and Clayton County line.
