ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The US National Weather Service in Saint Louis Missouri continues the hard work of surveying the damage from the severe weather events of Monday night. They confirmed three more tornadoes Wednesday.
Survey crews also uncovered additional tornado tracks associated with the same cell that produced the EF1 tornado in Wentzville Tuesday night. They followed the well defined meso-vortex signature that was seen on radar back to near Hermann. A nearly solid track of damage exists from just north of Hermann up to the south side of Warrenton, MO.
Here are the basics:
