A giant trunk of a tree, uprooted by the tornado, is dragged out of Mapleton, Iowa, Monday, April 11, 2011, with trucks carrying storm debris in the rear. A weekend tornado destroyed half of the western Iowa town of Mapleton, leaving trees wrapped around houses and vehicles in basements, but no one was killed and officials say the worst injury was a broken leg. Residents of a Mapleton had 15 minutes of warning before a tornado leveled more than half their community, a critical advantage in preventing any deaths or serious injuries. less
