PLEASONTON, Kan. (AP) — Linn County authorities say a tornado destroyed an historic church and a business but caused no serious injuries.

The tornado touched down Sunday afternoon near Pleasanton, completely destroying a church that dated to 1867. A construction shop also was destroyed.

Linn County emergency manager Douglas Barlet says the storm damaged some barns and outbuildings and power lines were down but no serious injuries were reported.

KCTV5 reports that the tornado then crossed the Missouri border and was spotted in rural Bates County, where no serious damage was reported.
