An EF 3 tornado with wind speeds as high as 145 mph completely leveled a Boy Scout camping area in western Iowa. During the event four Boy Scouts died and up to 48 were injured. At the campsite, a pickup truck had been tossed on its side and tree limbs rested on top of the Scouts' tents. After the storm ended the Scouts put their first-aid training to use by applying tourniquets and gauze to the injured. Some began digging victims from the rubble of a collapsed fireplace. Others broke into an equipment shed to get chainsaws and other tools, and began clearing fallen trees from a road. The 93 boys, all elite Scouts attending a week long leadership training session, had taken part in a mock emergency drill with 25 staff members just a day before the tornado struck.
