Damage assessment teams discovered the tornadoes from Monday night did some EF-3 damage in some areas of Missouri. The attached picture is from Springfield and the crews determined the tornado did EF-1 damage in town. Southwest of Springfield, there was EF-2 damage to some houses and an elementary school. EF-2 tornadoes are estimated to contain winds up to 135 mph.
The most significant damage occurred north of Marshfield and Strafford where several homes and a barn was destroyed. EF-3 damage occurred in these areas. You might recall, the National Weather Service started using the new Enhanced Fujita scale last year to get a better estimation on wind speeds associated with a tornado.
The weather situation looks much quieter for the rest of the week and into the weekend.
