ⓘ Manson, Iowa

Manson was platted in 1872 on the Dubuque and Sioux City Railroad line.

A destructive F4 tornado killed three people and destroyed a large part of Manson on June 28, 1979 about 7:45 PM. Tornado slowly chewed its way from North-West to South-East through Manson. The tornado was on the southwest side of the large South-moving thunderstorm complex, thus it was surrounded on three sides by clear skies in fact, the sun was shining and it was very noticeable. Heavy damage was caused in the Central business district with 25 of the 35 businesses either destroyed or severely damaged. In high school was also destroyed about 110 homes. Another 139 houses were damaged. In General, the telephone exchange building company Manson was completely destroyed - the first time it happened in Iowa. It was reported that the storm was like a lawn mower going through the city, and then you could see from one end of town to another, the damage to the track.

There was about 30 minutes warning and the tornado sirens were sounded well before the arrival of the tornado. The fact that it was still daylight also contributes to the relatively low level of mortality from this devastating storm.
