Officials with the National Weather Service say a Storm Chaser reported a tornado on the ground about two-miles southwest of Carroll, Wednesday night. The event that took place at around 8-p.m., resulted in downed trees, and damage to some outbuildings. About four-minutes later, the Carroll County 9-1-1 Dispatch Center received reports the roof and doors were blown off a machine shed two-miles south/southeast of Carroll.

Just before 8-p.m., a trained storm spotter reported a tornado caused damage in the Carroll County town of Halbur, including downed power lines and an overturned camper. Power poles also were toppled near Randall in Hamilton County, which is northeast of Carroll.

Nickel-to quarter-size hail was reported in the Shelby County town of Panama, at around 7:40-p.m., Wednesday. Penny-sized (3/4″) hail fell four-miles southwest of Missouri Valley at around 7:14-p.m.

And, 60-mile per hour winds were reported just northwest of Scranton, in Greene County, a little after 8:30-p.m., along with pea-size hail and water ponding in the streets. There were no immediate reports of injuries associated with the storms.
