The National Weather Service has confirmed there were two tornadoes that struck the KWQC viewing area on Monday, June 24, 2013.

The first touched down in Muscatine, Iowa, while the other hit Atkinson, Ill.

Surveillance video from a car wash shows the storm that hit Muscatine.

You can see the debris as it hits the Krieger Auto Collision Center building across the street.

The National Weather Service says it was an EF-1 tornado with 110 mile-an-hour wind speeds.

They say it traveled six-and-a-half miles.

One person at the collision center was injured and later died in the hospital.

The storm also destroyed farm buildings in its path.

Meanwhile, the tornado in Atkinson, Ill., was also declared an EF-1 with wind speeds of 90-miles-per-hour.
