  • Southwest Missourians experienced high winds and rain Monday evening.
    Storm sirens went off in the Neosho area shortly after 6:30 p.m.
    From6:30 p.m. until 7:15 p.m., the area was considered under tornado warnings, however, no tornadoes were reported to have touched down.
    Newton County Emergency Management Director Gary Roark told the Neosho Daily News that there were some trees down in Seneca.
    "I was out looking at it (in Seneca on Tuesday) this morning, they have got quite a number of trees down, some big trees, little trees and a lot of limbs," he said. "The power was off down there (Monday)."
    Also, just outside of Seneca on Quince and Antelope Road, a couple of buildings were down.
    "There was one farm that had lost an older type barn, a small building and had some roof damage, but that could have been straight line winds and probably was," Roark added. "Other than the Seneca area, that seemed to be the one
    that got the most wind damage. I don't think that there was any structure damage of any kind, not that I am aware of. We didn't have any reports of trees on houses either."
    According to Wes Franklin, public relations/ events coordinator with the City of Neosho, "Neosho sustained no major storm damage or injuries. There are a few trees down, as well as limbs and branches."
    Roark did mention that there were no fatalities or injuries reported because of the storm.
