KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A small tornado touched down early Monday evening in mid-Missouri, causing damage to several buildings along a 14-mile path.
The National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill reports the EF-1 tornado touched down at 4:57 p.m. about two miles east of Knob Noster.
After touching down, the tornado moved northeast for about 14.5 miles, according to the National Weather Service, with a maximum wind speed of 95 miles per hour.
The twister’s width was estimated at about 600 feet. It caused some damage to some homes and several farm buildings, including two large chicken farms, and eventually dissipated two miles north of Hughesville about 19 minutes after it touched down.
That was one of 36 tornado reports nationwide Monday listed on the National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center’s website, including the EF-5 tornado that killed 24 people and injured hundreds more in Moore, Okla.
