PERRY COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

The National Weather Service has released a damage survey for the May 9 storms in Perry County, Missouri.

According to the NWS, peak winds were 95 mph with a path length of 7.5 miles from west of Brewer to 1 mile east of Lithium, ending at Levee Road. The path width was 2.5 miles.

They say hundreds of trees were uprooted and broken off. One house had the roof completely torn off and the chimney fell through the floors into the basement.

The NWS reports 25 to 30 houses with significant roof damage, and numerous outbuildings and small sheds were destroyed.

Much of the Heartland was under a thunderstorm watch and several thunderstorm warnings were issued Friday afternoon, May 9 in southeast Missouri.

The SEMO Red Cross tweeted they will be responding to Perry County, Mo. for disaster relief. They say they have reports of five homes with storm damage.

Perry County Sheriff Gary Schaaf says the northern half of the county was hit by the storm. A roof was blown off a two-story house on Hwy. 61 north of Perryville. Numerous trees are down and several are across roads.

The National Weather Service reports the following:
