A suspected tornado moved through rural areas of Stuart, about 40 miles west of Des Moines. Several homes were damaged as the storms moved through. The National Weather Service will send a survey team to the area on Tuesday to determine if the damage was caused by a tornado or straight-line winds.

Hail caused major damaged in Guthrie County.  In Adel, wind-blown hail caused damage to several buildings including one home. The siding on the home was severely damaged and many windows were shattered by the hail.

As the storms moved to the east, they caused wind damage in Des Moines, knocking down trees and causing minor damage to several homes.

No serious injuries have been reported.
