At least six people - four adults and two children - were killed Saturday night by a tornado in Iowa in the central United States, according to emergency officials.
The tornado also injured at least four people, and caused significant damage to homes and property, Madison County Emergency Services Director Diogenes Ayala said.
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds has declared a state of natural disaster for Madison County, located in the central part of the state. Our thoughts are with all those affected by the deadly storms that ravaged our state today, he wrote in a statement.
In December, several dozen violent tornadoes ravaged five states in the central United States, mainly Kentucky, killing at least 79 people.
