Officials say the southeastern Kansas town of Eureka has been hit by a tornado that has caused significant widespread damage.

The National Weather Service says a tornado warning for Greenwood County was issued just after 9:00 p.m. The tornado hit Eureka around 9:45 p.m.

Greenwood County Emergency Management Director Levi Vinson confirmed at 12:30 a.m. that there were no reports of injuries or deaths.

Vinson says there was a lot of structural damage, including to a local nursing home, mobile homes and a barn. People have been displaced from their homes and have been asked to take shelter at the Eureka United Methodist Church.

Vinson said the American Red Cross was on its way to the scene. Firefighters were going home to home to check on residents.
