UPDATE: Minor injuries and damage after storms pass through Moville, IA

MOVILLE, Iowa (KTIV) -

Many homeowners on the north side of Moville, IA are beginning the task of putting their homes back together after a storm Monday night.

During the 9:00 hour, powerful winds made their way through the small town. Many people huddled in their basements, and came up to find major damage.

What folks say came out of nowhere, left them with lots of debris.

"Had to be a tornado. It took a home from North 5th and put it in our front yard," said Cindy Lloyd.

A tornado hasn't been confirmed but either way all Cindy Lloyd sees is major damage to her home on North 4th Street.

"We went to the door to look out and heard all the glass breaking and our windows are all broken. There was debris flying around, so we ran to the basement," said Lloyd.

When Cindy came back up, she found boards, twisted metal and insulation littering the neighborhood.

"There's debris and decking all up and down the streets. The neighbors lost their roof," said Lloyd.

Next door to Cindy, neighbors worked through the night to seal this family's roof. They're currently on vacation but will be back Tuesday morning.

"Just gotta see what daylight brings," said Lloyd.

A big job ahead is a given, as folks in Moville begin the process of recovering from yet another round of destructive storms.

Officials say two people suffered minor injuries in Moville last night but don't have further details at this time.

The damage is spread throughout the north and east sides of Moville.

Officials say some campers at the Woodbury County Fairgrounds were tipped over by the winds.

Trees were toppled and power was knocked out to the entire town.

Folks say the worst of the storm lasted for several minutes

"It was pretty forceful. It was knocking things around. Some of the people said their things blew right off their walls and everything," said Craig Sitzmann.

Authorities even responded to a gas leak, which was quickly fixed.

A shelter is open at the community center for anyone without a place to stay.
