 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: This tornado is a continuation of the southeastern Texas County tornado. A National Weather Service storm survey revealed that an EF-2 tornado entered rural west central Shannon County from southeastern Texas County. This tornado tracked across forested areas of west central and central Shannon County, uprooting and snapping numerous trees. The Missouri Department of Conservation announced that the tornado and other high winds from this event resulted in $13M of damage to trees. The tornado also damaged a sawmill along its path. EPISODE NARRATIVE: An intense squall line impacted extreme southeast Kansas and the Missouri Ozarks with mainly damaging winds. However, 19 tornadoes along with large hail was also observed. Due to the straight line nature of the winds, damage was widespread and intense.

 Brief Description: An F2 tornado, plus associated destructive convergent winds around the tornadic circulation, caused extensive damage from 2 miles west of the Willow Springs Highway Patrol Headquarters, northeast to a mile and a half northeast of Willow Springs along Highway 378. Although the tornadic circulation was only 100 yards wide, it caused damage up to 300 yards wide. Large, century year old oak trees were uprooted throughout the area. West of the Willow Springs Highway Patrol Headquarters, a bass boat was thrown across two pastures and over two fences. A barn near this pasture was damaged. Troop G Headquarters had their 365' radio tower blown down. The tower landed on a home in the Hickory Hills Subdivision in Willow Springs. Four homes loss shingles and two homes completely lost their roofs. A church was rotated 45 degrees off its foundation and cemetery headstones were toppled. The worst damage occurred on a hilltop north of Willow Springs where a home was almost completely destroyed along with numerous outbuildings in a half mile area.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: This is an extension of the Ozark County tornado. A National Weather Service storm survey revealed that a large tornado ripped through rural sections of southwest Howell County, Missouri. The community of Caulfield experienced a direct hit. Numerous farms and structures were damaged or destroyed. One fatality occurred as the tornado ripped through a mobile home northeast of Caulfield. Four other injuries occurred in the same mobile home. The tornado lifted approximately one mile southwest of the West Plains city limits. EPISODE NARRATIVE: Several severe thunderstorms impacted southern Missouri during the morning hours of March 1st. A classic supercell moved from northern Arkansas and into Ozark and Howell counties.

 Brief Description: The tornado damage path began on the west side of Van Buren, right along the Current River, and crossed U.S. Route 60 very close to the Current River bridge. Two businesses in Van Buren, a lodge and a restaurant, were heavily damaged by F-2 intensity winds. The tornado travelled southeast across hilly and forested terrain until reaching the community of Ellsinore. Damage on the south side of Ellsinore was severe, where about 7 businesses were destroyed. Most of the damage at Ellsinore, which was inflicted by F-4 intensity winds, occurred along and near U.S. Highway 60. Across Carter County, 13 homes were destroyed and 12 homes suffered major damage. The tornado then moved into the Mark Twain National Forest and crossed into Butler County north of Highway 60.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: The tornado touched down near County Road 223, where a tin roof was peeled up on a small outbuilding. A gate and fence were blown about 50 feet. The tornado reached its maximum width and its peak intensity as it crossed County Road 225. This is where a permanent home suffered partial wall and roof loss, a mobile home was blown 15 feet off its foundation, and over one hundred trees were uprooted. The residents of the mobile home took refuge in the laundry room, which was the only room not destroyed. Residents of both homes were provided food and shelter by the Red Cross. A large oak tree fell on a vehicle, causing major damage to the vehicle. Two other vehicles were damaged by debris. A shed and outbuildings were destroyed. A bicycle was blown up into a tree. A twin-pole high voltage transmission tower was partially blown over. The tornado crossed U.S. Highway 60, then struck a sawmill on Highway FF. The 40-by-100 foot sawmill was destroyed. None of the eight workers in the sawmill were injured, possibly because they jumped into a sawdust pit. A home near the sawmill lost part of its roof (less than 20 percent), and dozens of large trees were uprooted. As the tornado crossed County Road 327, a few more trees were blown down. Part of a metal roof from a small barn was blown into a tree. Due to damage to the high-voltage transmission lines, over 1,500 customers from Van Buren to Ellsinore were without power for up to four hours. A National Weather Service damage survey confirmed a convergent signature to the debris pattern. A person in the area reported witnessing the tornado. Peak winds in this tornado were estimated near 120 mph. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A pre-frontal line of thunderstorms developed ahead of a cold front over western Missouri. The broken line of storms extended southwestward across southeast Missouri. Isolated bowing segments and supercells were embedded within portions of the line. The storms existed within a narrow axis of marginal instability with mixed layer capes at or below 500 j/kg. A low level jet axis along the Mississippi River provided more than sufficient vertical wind shear for embedded supercells with isolated tornadoes.

 Brief Description: A National Weather Service storm survey team revealed that an F-2 tornado touched down 9 miles east of Thayer near Highway V. The tornado continued on a path 300 yards wide to 8 miles northeast of Myrtle. Two mobile homes were destroyed and several other homes were heavily damaged along the tornado path.

 Brief Description: The tornado touched down 2.5 miles southeast of Oates, in Reynolds County, near Forest Road 2329, then traveled northeast crossing Route J near the intersection with County Road 829. At this location it removed the roof of a pole barn, caused damage to the roof of a house and uprooted and snapped numerous trees. The damage path was around 200 yards wide and was rated F1 in intensity. As it traveled northeast, it snapped, uprooted and twisted numerous trees and caused minor roof damage to a manufactured home. As the tornado crossed Highway 49, two and a half miles north of the town of Black, it caused considerable damage. Numerous trees were snapped and uprooted, an unanchored manufactured home sustained heavy damage and was shifted 30 feet. Two automobiles were lifted distances ranging from 10 to 50 yards and two other homes sustained varying degrees of damage directly from the tornado and from fallen trees. A well defined convergent pattern was evident in the debris and eyewitnesses indicate the tornado had a multiple vortex structure. The damage path was around a third of a mile wide and was rated a high end F1 in this location. Further to the northeast, the tornado crossed Route MM around eight tenths of a mile north of Monterey. At this location an uninhabited home was completely destroyed with the walls pulled from numerous anchor bolts attached to the concrete foundation. Also, a wooden power pole was snapped at the base and numerous trees were snapped. The damage path was around a quarter of a mile wide and was rated a low end F2 in this location. The tornado then tracked northeast into Iron County about three tenths of a mile north of Munger. No injuries or deaths were reported.
