According to reports, the twister reached the ground in Independence with wind speeds up to 110-miles-per-hour and traveled about three-and-a-half-miles.
The tornado left a damage path around 100-yards wide and partially collapsed the roof of the Ammon Staffing Building along I-10.
No injuries were reported, but officials say a vehicle was lifted over the interstate and caused minor damage to Westminster Elementary School.
