Officials say second person dies from injuries sustained during tornado in southeastern Iowa

Officials say a second person has died from injuries sustained during a tornado that touched down in southeastern Iowa.

The Keokuk County Sheriff's Office confirmed two fatalities from Sunday's tornado, but did not release additional information.

A spokeswoman for Cambridge Investment Research in Fairfield says an employee, Pam Ledger, died Tuesday morning from her injuries. First Vice President Cindy M. Schaus says Ledger's family confirmed the information.

Schaus says Ledger was injured when a barn collapsed in Keokuk County. Another person died Sunday when strong winds caused an outbuilding to collapse in a rural area near Kinross. That person's identity has not been released.

The National Weather Service says the EF1 tornado recorded Sunday had an estimated peak wind of 108 mph and traveled more than 40 miles.
