Tornado damage reported in southeast Missouri

LEOPOLD | Cleanup is under way in the southeast Missouri town of Leopold after damage, apparently from tornadoes.

A line of storms swept through the Midwest on Sunday afternoon, spawning a series of funnel cloud reports. National Weather Service investigators will visit Leopold to determine if damage there was from a tornado or tornadoes.

Pat Peters is sure it was a tornado that damaged her property in less than two minutes. One of her daughters called after hearing a weather alert on her car radio. The women were on the phone when Pat Peters looked out the window and saw the wind pick up.

She didn't quite make it to the basement, but was not hurt. The tornado caused about $25,000 in damage to two outbuildings.
