Same storms produced tornadoes in Midwest

The same line of storms produced two tornadoes in Missouri late Monday night. The National Weather Service said there were corridors of significant damage in the Oak Grove area east of Kansas City, in Smithville north of Kansas City and in the Kansas suburbs of Leawood and Olathe.

Officials said there were no immediate reports of fatalities as a result of the storms. 

In Clinton County, emergency crews found a line of damage from south of Plattsburg, about 30 miles northeast of Kansas City, east to the area south of Lathrop and on to Interstate 35, said Rick Bashor, police chief in nearby Cameron.

Two people were injured and taken to an area hospital, but neither injury was critical, said Bashor, who went to Clinton County to help in the aftermath of the storm.

Information from ABC News was used in this report.
