DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Gov. Terry Branstad has issued an emergency proclamation for two southwest Iowa counties in the wake of Saturday's severe storms.
The declaration allows state resources to be used to help communities in Fremont and Union counties recover.
State officials have said a large part of the town of Thurman, in Fremont County, was destroyed by a possible tornado. In Creston, in Union County, a hospital suffered roof damage and had its windows blown out by storm. No injuries were reported.
Branstad plans to view storm damage in Creston Sunday afternoon. His aerial tour will include the Greater Regional Medical Center and Southwest Iowa Community College.
