The powerful storms that spawned several tornadoes on Tuesday in Iowa claimed at least five lives and injured dozens more.

KCRG reports that the Iowa Department of Public Safety said Wednesday that four people had been killed in the city of Greenfield, Iowa. Officials have not released the names of the victims as they are still in the process of notifying relatives. Authorities say another woman was killed in her car by a tornado about 25 miles outside of Greenfield on Tuesday. KCRG reports that officials say at least 35 people were injured in the storm.

Officials with the National Weather Service have said that after an initial survey, it appears the tornado that hit Greenfield was at least an EF-3 tornado, with top wind speeds at 165 mph, according to KCRG. Officials say that ranking could go higher after further investigation. The twister was on the ground for more than 40 miles. Part of its journey was captured by a drone that showed the tornado hitting farm buildings and taking down several wind turbines.

Another set of satellite images released on Wednesday shows the path the Greenfield tornado took. KCRG reports that images from BlackSky Technology show the city of Greenfield before Tuesday's tornado.
