Below is a listing of the tornadoes that have occurred across Iowa so far in 2014. KMZ files for many of the tracks can be downloaded and viewed in Google Earth by clicking on the appropriate icon in the table following the map.

Please note that all information on this page is considered preliminary and may change at any time. Contour lines are often interpolated and may not encompass the full extent of the damage. Surveying procedures and usage of the Damage Assessment Toolkit (DAT), which is used to generate the close-up map views and KMZ files, varies between NWS offices. Weak tornadoes that are not surveyed or have no damage path are often not entered into the DAT. This page will be updated as time and resources allow.
