Not good....not good....not good.....I hate to feel helpless at times like these. It happened.....pray it was just an F-0 or better. I was reading that the other day, a twister recently picked up a dog and safely put him down in a nearby field. Let's hope........

My daughter just called and said four confirmed dead. Many injured. This may be the worst disaster yet for Iowa. Tornadoes flying around my daughter's house. Supposedly, it's headed our way.

Nothing compares to these young boys. My house can be blown away. I don't care. The tragedy of these young boys is just too much. Pray

Thanks. This is just too much. The flooding is nothing in comparison to the loss of life of these youngsters. I've heard as many as 40 injured.

My grandson is a firefighter in Omaha and he said reports are that this is very serious.

Fervent prayers from BSA Troop 1 and Venture Crew 29 here in GA.

We had a tornado warning once while in camp, but nothing touched down. You're just very exposed, even in the NGA mountains.

4 dead and 40 hurt. How incredibily sad. They must not have had any place to take shelter or they didn’t get a warning.

Talk about worst case scenario.

I’ll bet that an unprecedented number of hero stories come out of this in a few days, cause that’s what Scouts do.
