DES MOINES, Iowa - A spokeswoman for Iowa Homeland Security says at least four people were killed and 40 injured when a tornado struck a western Iowa Boy Scout camp. Iowa Homeland Security spokeswoman Julie Tack says a search and rescue team has been deployed to the camp near Little Sioux in Harrison County. She says the camp is covered with debris and downed trees after the tornado hit about 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Tack says there were 93 campers and 25 staff members at the camp. The campers were between 13 and 18 years old and were attending a leadership training camp. "They were considered some of the best in the area," Tack said. At least 40 people who were injured in the storm were being taken to area hospitals.

Some Boy Scouts from the Philippines made a video in honor of the Boy Scouts hurt and killed during the tornado hit in Iowa.

Can you find the Scouts from Melrose in this video?
