GOLDEN CITY, Mo. — Crews with the National Weather Service are headed to southwest Missouri following extensive damage caused by the storms Sunday night, according to The Associated Press.

While the weather radar indicated possible tornadoes near Neosho and Golden City before dawn this morning no injuries out of Jasper or Newton County have been reported, said Dough Cramer of the National Weather Service in Springfield.

The Emergency Manager for Newton County said teams are currently looking into the area near Highway AA and Jaguar road where much of the area has been affected. Trees and powerlines are down with even some structures showing damage as a result of the near 60 MPH winds.

Elsewhere in the four states, Coweta, Oklahoma saw damage from suspected tornadoes and baseball-sized hail. No injuries or deaths were reported but managed to mangle several structures as seen in the gallery below:

Despite the dissipation and clear skies seen today the storms are likely to return again by Wednesday.
