Tornado confirmed near Mt. Pleasant

May 11, 2017

MT. PLEASANT (AP) – Officials say a tornado touched down south of Mt. Pleasant in the southeastern corner of Iowa, but no reports of injuries or damage had been made Wednesday afternoon.

Mt. Pleasant City Administrator Brent Schleisman says the tornado was confirmed around 3 p.m. Wednesday. It hit as the National Weather Service placed parts of Henry and Des Moines counties under a tornado warning.

Schleisman said he believed the tornado skirted south of Mt. Pleasant, but, as of Wednesday after the storm, had not had much of a chance to check in with residents. Schleisman said he and other city hall employees “just got out of the basement ourselves.”
