Officials said they are still working to assess the aftermath from Monday's storm in Muscatine.

They say some areas of the city were hit so badly, they won't have a complete evaluation until Tuesday or Wednesday.

The hardest hit area in Muscatine was the former strip mall including Calvary Church and Krieger Collision Center. As of 7:30 p.m. there was still debris strewn about the area from the buildings' roofs being torn off. 

Authorities say there was a man inside Krieger when the roof collapsed. They say he suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to a hospital in Iowa City. Authorities were unsure of his condition at this time.

Meanwhile, Calvary Church's roof was blown off and there were several inches of standing water inside the building as of Monday evening.

Some of the church members KWQC talked to said they were thankful the church is closed Mondays because they never heard the warning sirens go off.

Matthew Shook with Muscatine County Emergency Management confirmed the issue with the sirens.

"The actual tornado warning wasn't issued until 22 minutes after 3:00 p.m.," Shook said. "So the storm was actually here and gone by the time we got the notification for the warning."

Shook said the National Weather Service is investigating the incident. He also said there's no way of knowing if the sirens would have prevented any injuries.

Emergency management says it is still waiting for word from the NWS on how it will classify the storm that tore through the area.
