National Weather Service confirms tornado near Webb City

(From Joplin Emergency Management)

Just wanted to mention that the NWS has confirmed a sixth tornado resulting from the Thursday PM storms that came through our area. The sixth tornado was an EF0 in Jasper County. Here's the verbiage:

"EF-0 tornado confirmed near Webb City from Thursday evening's storms. Winds estimated at 80 mph."

Kudos to the jurisdictions that activated their storm sirens, as well other warning methods, while in the potential path of this tornado producing storm. And a big thank you to our citizens who took shelter during the warning period.
