CLARKSVILLE (KWWL) - A National Weather Service survey team confirmed Tuesday that two EF1 tornadoes ripped through the Clarksville area Monday night.

The first tornado had wind speeds of up to 110 mph and was about 250 yards wide, beginning at 7:55 p.m. three miles west of Clarksville and ending at 7:59 p.m. one mile west of Clarksville.

At 8:04 p.m., the same storm produced a second tornado that started its path one mile northeast of Clarksville and ended three minutes later four miles east of Clarksville. That tornado also had wind speeds up to 110 mph and was 150 yards wide.

Monday's severe weather felled trees and downed power lines in Clarksville. 

Power was out across the town from 8:30 p.m. Monday until at least 3:30 a.m. Tuesday. Dozens of trees were uprooted, some falling onto houses.

No injuries have been reported yet, according to Butler Co. Emergency Manager Mitch Nordmeyer.

Because of all the downed power lines, he asked that people avoid town. Damage can be reported to Clarksville Fire at 319-278-1180.

The full extent of the damage wasn't yet known.

Clarksville residents who want to drop off storm debris can bring it to Lynwood Cemetery, according to city officials.
