SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) -- A tornado hit a park near Sioux City, but only minor damage to some trees is reported.

The tornado hit Stone State Park on the northwest side of the city just before 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Woodbury County emergency services director Gary Brown says there were no injuries and no homes were damaged.

A tornado warning was issued for the area as a series of storms moved from Nebraska into Iowa. The storms also produced heavy rain, causing some street flooding in Sioux City.
