The Tracker Marine facility in Lebanon, Mo., was among those damaged Wednesday by a series of storms that carved a path though Missouri, Kansas and Illinois, according to media reports.

A portion of the facility's roof was damaged, but the company expects to be building boats again early next week, company spokeman Larry Whiteley told Soundings Trade Only. There were about 300 boats damaged by the storm. No one was injured.

The storms on Wednesday were blamed for at least three deaths in Missouri. Tornado damage was confirmed, but the number of tornadoes remains unclear.

Initial reports from the State Emergency Management Agency listed dozens of reported injuries, as well, in counties stretching from the Kansas border to the Missouri Bootheel, according to reports.

National Weather Service surveys of reported storm damage were expected to continue today, meteorologist Ryan Kardell said.
