DONIPHAN, MO (KFVS) - At least one person has been hurt as a powerful thunderstorm tore through an area just east of Doniphan.

According to the National Weather Service a home 3 miles south of Caruthersville was partially damaged. The weather service also reports 2 sheds and some irrigation equipment were blown over.
