There are reports of tornado damage in southwest Missouri after tornado warnings were issued by the National Weather Service.

A radar confirmed tornado was also reported four miles southwest of Neosho.

There’s also been a confirmed tornado with touchdowns along the Jasper/Barton County line, according to the National Weather Service. There are reports from that area of a barn destroyed, multiple trees down and a farm implement flipped over.
