Authorities are assessing the damage after severe storms pummeled west-central Missouri near the towns of Warrensburg, Sedalia and Knob Noster.
A home off Buckley Road in Pettis County was damaged. The owner says he ran to his basement after hearing an alert from KCTV5 Chief Meteorologist Chris Suchan.
The man's home and shop suffered extensive damage, but the man is OK.
Police in Warrensburg reported trees and power lines down. The southeast portion of the town was hit the hardest by the storms Monday afternoon.
The Johnson County Sheriff's Office said power lines and poles are down on Highway 50 near Knob Noster.
A funnel cloud was reported just before 5 p.m. near Knob Noster, prompting the National Weather Service to issue a tornado warning for parts of Johnson and Pettis counties in Missouri.
Golf-ball size hail was near Holden.
Flash flood was reported after the storms hit. The National Weather Service will determine if an EF-1 tornado hit.
"We did have a possible touchdown over on Patrick Road," Lamont Assistant Chief Mariah Durham said. "That was the only sighting we really had around this area. We monitored it and dispersed to all four corners of the community."
The National Weather Service has allowed a tornado watch for the Kansas City area to expire several hours early. Suchan said storms are moving to the east.
Tuesday will see a pleasant start.
There is only a small chance for an isolated shower or thunderstorm Tuesday afternoon with temperatures climbing into the mid-70s. But Suchan said the risk is much lower and less significant than over the weekend and Monday.
Much quieter weather is anticipated for the middle to end of the work week with highs in the low 70s and partly cloudy skies.
Several tornadoes touched down in the nation's midsection Sunday, concentrating damage in central Oklahoma and Wichita, KS.
Two people were killed in or near the mobile home park, which is outside of Shawnee, a community about 35 miles southeast of Oklahoma City. At least 39 people throughout Oklahoma were injured, according to the state's emergency management director, Albert Ashwood.
The National Weather Service was forecasting more of the same for the region - including Oklahoma City and Tulsa - Monday afternoon and evening, warning of the possibility of tornadoes and baseball-sized hail. Residents of Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri were also warned to watch for bad weather Monday.
In Wichita, a tornado touched down near Mid-Continent Airport on the city's southwest side shortly before 4 p.m., knocking out power to thousands of homes and businesses but bypassing the most populated areas of Kansas' biggest city. The Wichita tornado was an EF1 - the strength of tornado on the enhanced Fujita scale - with winds of 110 mph, according to the weather service.
The weather service reported two tornadoes touched down in Iowa - near Huxley and Earlham. Damage included the loss of some cattle when the storm blew over a barn on a farm in Mitchell County. In the event of new impending strikes, first responders planned to use their emergency vehicles' sirens to warn residents.
