Several tornadoes ripped through northwest Missouri Tuesday night.
The National Weather Service has confirmed that five small tornadoes hit northwest Missouri, including three in a single town. The twisters were spawned by a cold front that swept northern Missouri on Tuesday evening, bringing torrential rain but leaving mostly minor damage.
The first traveled slightly more than three miles in the Tarkio area, starting just before 6 p.m. Tuesday.
Surveyors also confirmed three tornadoes in 30 minutes around Maitland. The longest traveled three miles, and the others a quarter-mile each.
In DeKalb County, a tornado touched down just before 10:30 p.m. west of Fairport and traveled about a mile.
National Weather Service Meteorologist Julie Adolphson says the tornadoes were short lived.
Adolphson says the national weather service spent a lot time yesterday reviewing damage reports from the storm.
Nodaway Holt High School in Graham was closed yesterday because of roof damage.
