The city of Sioux Falls is reeling after a likely tornado struck late last night, leaving behind a trail of damage and debris.

“There is a level of destruction up here that we’re not use to seeing.” 

That’s news anchor Brian Allen who works for KSFY-Television in Sioux Falls who says the twister touched down about a mile from his home.    

“Roofs have collapsed, windows have been blown out.  There is tree damage area.. power poles are down and trees are down.”

Allen is a former anchor at KCAU Television in Sioux City.

Coming up next on The Exchange, President Donald Trump has put tariffs on commodities like corn, soybeans and steel, to help even out America’s trade deficit with China.  However, Iowa farmers are already feeling the pain with lower prices and fears for the future.

Also, the sounds of the upcoming African Night.

And another Small Wonder with Jim Schaap.  That and more coming up on The Exchange, but first, this news.
