"It hit and everything blew away."
DES MOINES, Iowa A tornado struck a western Iowa Boy Scout camp Wednesday, killing at least four people and injuring 40, an Iowa Homeland Security spokeswoman said.
A search and rescue team has been deployed to the camp near Little Sioux, Homeland Security spokeswoman Julie Tack said. She said the camp was covered with debris and downed trees after the tornado hit about 7 p.m.
Some victims might be trapped under debris, Tack said.
"We are still receiving information and we're processing it as we receive it," she said.
There were 93 campers and 25 staff members at the camp, Tack said. The campers were between 13 and 18 years old and were attending a leadership training camp.
"They were considered some of the best in the area," Tack said.
At least 40 people who were injured in the storm were being taken to area hospitals.
