At least six people were killed Saturday evening by a tornado in Iowa, in the center of the United States, according to the emergency services.

They are four adults and two children.

The tornado also injured at least four people and caused "significant damage to homes and property," Madison County Emergency Services Director Diogenes Ayala said.

Our hearts go out to all those affected by the deadly storms that tore through our state today.

Kevin and I join with Iowans in prayer for those who lost their lives and those injured.

— Gov.
