3 Additional Tornadoes Confirmed Across Southern Missouri
Late yesterday, the National Weather Service confirmed three more tornadoes. Two of those have had completed storm surveys. The text concerning those tornadoes are found below. The third tornado was confirmed in Republic, but I have yet to find any official storm survey details. As soon as I do, I will post it online.
