MARYSVILLE, Kan. (AP) – Authorities in a northeast Kansas county say a tornado damaged two businesses and some homes but there are no early reports of fatalities or serious injuries.

Marshall County emergency management director Bill Schwindamann says the tornado was reported about 9:30 p.m. Monday in Marysville, about 150 miles northwest of Kansas City near the Nebraska border.

Schwindamann says one business was destroyed and another was seriously damaged. He says about 25 homes suffered damage ranging from minor to substantial.  Some livestock also was reported missing at a farm where a barn was destroyed.

Crews are assessing damage, restoring power and cleaning up in Marysville following last night’s tornado. The twister damaged a few businesses and more than 20 homes but caused no serious injuries. Tornadoes also touched down in Smith, Clay and Jewell counties.
