Yesterday, July 19, a strong tornado ripped through Marshalltown, https://weather.com/storms/severe/video/marshalltown-iowa-courthouse-steeple-no-match-for-tornado causing extensive damage to the town and the RACOM facility.
Good news from our friends at RACOM: Nobody hurt. All systems (P25 and EDACS) stayed completely operational. 2 floors now alfresco.
