LEAWOOD, MO.--- The National Weather Service says there was a brief tornado touchdown in Leawood overnight. Representatives with the National Weather Service in Springfield did a preliminary survey today. They said the damage was strictly tree damage and no structures were affected.

There were no buildings in the area where the tornado touched down. The NWS estimates wind speeds at 100 miles per hour. The National Weather Service will come back out again tomorrow or Thursday, because the damage was more extensive than previously thought.
