EF-0 downs tree that damages home

The National Weather Service has confirmed an EF-0 tornado struck Cassville on April 30.

According to a Service report, the tornado tracked from two miles south-southwest of Cassville to one mile west-northwest of Cassville. The path was intermittent, lasting 1.89 miles and reaching a max width of 75 yards.

The storm caused large trees to be downed or damaged, and one large tree fell and damaged a house.

The storm approached Cassville shortly before 7 p.m. with only a severe thunderstorm warning attached, but developing rotation led to a tornado warning being issued and sirens sounded as the storm moved into to the city.
