Early reports stated that a hospital and nursing home were directly hit by the tornado, but both structures may not be as badly damaged as previously reported, according to KSN-TV.

Widespread tree and power line damage is making it difficult for emergency crews to reach the worst hit areas.

Numerous roofs have been blown off of homes across the town, according to local law enforcement.

Any displaced residents are asked to head to the local Methodist Church. No injuries have been reported at this time.
