TRENTON, Mo. (AP) -- At least four homes have been damaged in northwest Missouri as violent weather packing high winds, funnel clouds and at least one tornado swept across the state.

Hail and heavy rain also pelted parts of the state beginning Thursday afternoon, but no injuries were reported by early evening.

A trained spotter for the National Weather Service reported a tornado on the ground for six miles in the Trenton area of northwest Missouri's Grundy County. Emergency management said a house near Tindall lost its roof, and a road and bridge barn in the town was heavily damaged.

In nearby Daviess County, emergency management said high winds damaged two homes in Jameson and a mobile home in Winston.

Tornado sirens blared in parts of central Missouri as the storms moved eastward.
