Tornadoes hit Midwest

Troy Donahue reaches through the forest of branches on top of his roof for his chainsaw on Sunday, April 15, 2012 in Thurman, Iowa after a tornado the night before. Thurman appeared to be the hardest hit community in Iowa, but storms caused damage elsewhere in the state, as well as in Nebraska. There were more than 100 reports of tornadoes across the middle of the country through dawn Sunday, forecasters said.
