Severe weather rolls through central Iowa.  A tornado touched down near Earlham Sunday night.  It knocked down tree limbs, but so far, there are no reports of injuries or heavy damage.  Tornadoes also hit Kansas and Oklahoma, where at least one person was killed and more than 20 were injured.  Severe weather moved through parts of Siouxland earlier in the day.

Farmers who had land flooded by the Missouri River in 2011 are being offered some extra incentive to take that land out of production.  It's a one-time payment of an additional $100 per acre for land enrolled in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Conservation Reserve Program and Continuous Conservation Reserve Program.  The general signup the CRP starts May 20th and runs through June 14th.

The fish barrier is in place in the Iowa Great Lakes Region.  The electric barrier set up at the outlet of Lower Gar Lake is designed to keep carp and other invasive species out of the chain of recreational lakes.  Several species ended up in the lakes after the flooding of 2011.  Last fall, the community raised hundreds of thousands of dollars, with contributions from the states of Iowa and Minnesota, to set up the one million dollar electric barrier.

The Cherokee Airport hosted its annual Wings and Wheels show on Sunday, an event where vintage aircraft and classic cars share space on the tarmac.  The show gives folks a chance to get an up-close look inside all types of aircrafts and even take a ride in one.  Cherokee has been holding air shows like this since 1947.
