PERSIA, Iowa (AP) - The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning for Woodbury County in western Iowa.

The service said early Thursday morning that up to 3 inches of rain already had fallen and that thunderstorms in the area were expected to drop heavy rain.

Severe thunderstorms moved through much of western Iowa Wednesday evening, spawning at least one confirmed tornado. The service says the twister touched down near Persia, a small community in Harrison County. No damage or injuries have been reported.

Hail up to 1.75 inches in diameter was reported three miles southwest of Underwood in Pottawattamie County.
