Owners of Cookson Seed in Morley, Mo. had just remodeled and now the business is destroyed.
"I'm actually a claims adjuster for Missouri Farm Bureau," said Brad Cookson. "It's something I deal with on a daily basis, but when it happens to your property, it kinda makes you realize what other people go through."
Cookson said they plan to rebuild the business as quickly as they can.
A mobile home on Hwy. 77 was demolished in Scott County.
"We started off with a storm spotter activation," said Scott County Rural Fire Chief Jeremy Perrien. "That gets all three of our fire stations and engines out. One of the engines spotted a tornado on the ground north of Vanduser and from then on, it just turned bad. One after another. I think there were a total of three reported tornadoes. The calls for service started coming in, reports of people trapped, homes damaged, homes destroyed. So on and so forth. Just trying to get all of the incidents answered and responding to all of them was difficult with power lines down, poles down, trees down, houses across roads. You name it, we ran into it. It was difficult, but we got it done with the help of other departments and agencies that responded quickly also. So that was greatly appreciated."
Perrien says there was a small path between the populated cities of Haywood City, Vanduser, Blodgett, and Morley.
Those who lost their homes say they are thankful their families are safe. No one was injured in Scott County.
"Now I lost my house, but that's alright," said Lavern Holt. "I'll make it."
"I kind of joked with I left Express Fuel, I said I hope I have a house when I get back," said Chuck Bridges. "But I didn't. It's alright. I've got places to stay, a good church family. I'm going to be alright."
"I looked off and I could see rotation in the clouds, Bridges said. "Everybody went in and I never dreamed it would come this way. It's alright. I was blessed. Everyone's OK. No one was hurt."
"I saw it was it was coming across this way, picking up stuff just throwing it all over the place," said Russell Turner. "Then when I seen the house torn down, I thought these people are going to need some help."
Turner says the woman who lived in the home he watched get destroyed is OK.
Six mobile homes on County Road 507 were damaged.
"Back of mom's house, her bedroom is completely gone," said Carl Rickman. "It's just a total mess out here. My uncle's house over there, it blowed out all the windows on it. Totaled his truck. The gentlemen down the street, I'm glad he wasn't even there because his house is over in the road."
"We just got to find us another place to live," said Peggy Weems.
Two cows were killed when the storm hit a feed lot with 400 cows. The storm tore down fences, barns, and trees. Crews rounded up lost cattle on Monday.
"When the storm came through, just a bad situation here," said Jeff Limbaugh. "Got fence right here just a direct hit. It just happened to be where the cattle was. If it had been a quarter mile either way they would have just stood and watched it. It had to land right on top of them."
"We'll continue to pray for those across the river," Chief Perrien said of the tragedy in Brookport.
