The Freeborn County Sheriff's Office says the National Wather Service has confirmed a tornado touchdown Monday around 12:10 pm in the Glenville area.   They are clasifiying it as an EF-0 tornado that appeared about a mile north of town near the Glenville Beach.  Evidence shows it was on the ground for less than a mile with wind speeds of 85 miles per hour.

Three other tornadoes were confirmed yesterday; two in north Iowa in Charles City and Saratoga/Lime Springs, and another was confirmed in southern Minnesota near Greenleafton.  The two in north Iowa were rated EF-1s.  The Greenleafton tornado has a class rating of EF-0.  

We expect the NWS to do more survey work the next day or two to determine if more tornadoes formed yesterday.
