The National Weather Service will conduct surveys Monday to determine if tornadoes were responsible for storm damage in southwest Missouri Friday. 

The storms caused flooding and left one women, 53-year-old Kristi Yates, dead near Conway.  Donations are being taken for her funeral expenses through GoFundMe.

Two barns were destroyed and homes damaged near Fair Play.

And homes and businesses were damaged near Strafford.

Golf ball-sized hail was reported Friday in east Springfield.

The storms moved out and winter weather moved in overnight Friday.  Springfield had a reported 2.5 inches of snow with some ice accumulation.
