DES MOINES - The National Weather Service has received reports of injuries and possibly fatalities from an apparent tornado that struck a Boy Scout camp in western Iowa.

Meteorologist Jim Meyer says law enforcement officials had called the weather service Wednesday evening and reported injuries and damage at the Little Sioux Scout Ranch.

Meyer said: "We believe there were some fatalities and injuries."

A dispatcher with the Harrison County sheriff's department in Iowa says first responders are at the camp and more are en route. She isn't confirming reports of injuries.
