Ames will be under a tornado watch and a severe thunderstorm warning until Monday night.

Earlier Monday, Nichols said fire crews from several area departments were fighting a large brush fire in the 5400 block of N.W. Docking Road near Silver Lake which was affected by the weather including high winds.

The Joplin, Mo., tornado in May 2011 that killed 161 people and injured more than 1,000 was an EF-5, with winds estimated at more than 200 miles per hour.

According to the National Weather Service storm survey a tornado touched down on the south side of Centerville just after 8:30 p.m. Monday evening. As the tornado tore east, it caused the area of greatest home and property destruction 3 miles north of Perryville, in the vicinity of US 61 and Moore Drive.

The tornado destroyed a 1930s era home that was being used as a storage building and a barn, while it caused damage to three homes. They estimate it was on the ground for roughly one minute, between 7:32 and 7:33 p.m.

The weather service said there were signs of multiple vortexes near the easternmost part of Perry County near the Mississippi River, where the tornado reached its greatest width.

According to the Topeka office of the National Weather Service, a maximum wind gust of 53 miles per hour was recorded at 2:55 p.m. Monday.
