|The National Weather Service warning coordinator, Andy Bailey, said he can't confirm there was a tornado last night in Mercer county.|
Bailey did tell KTTN it is highly likely there was at least one tornado based on the damage reports to KTTN as well as a few phone calls the National Weather Services made.
Bailey also noted the weather service won't be able to send a damage survey crew today because meteorologists are preparing for more severe weather again today.
Among rainfall reports replayed to the National Weather Service, Princeton had an inch and third; Unionville reported one inch and 30 hundreths.

In northeast Missouri, Lancaster an inch and 61 hundreths and Downing an inch and 16 hundreths.
