RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The National Weather Service says tornadoes destroyed a rural home in South Dakota's Meade County and a rural school in Perkins County.

Hydrologist Melissa Smith in Rapid City says no injuries were reported. She says the last day of classes at Progress School was Friday, so no children were in the school when the tornado hit.

The damage was among reports across Nebraska, South Dakota and North Dakota as storms tore through the northern Plains on Monday, producing tornadoes, hail and heavy rain. No injuries had been reported in any state by Tuesday morning.

The weather service says straight-line winds of up to 110 mph damaged farm buildings and trees near Alliance, Neb., and ripped the roof off an apartment building in Scottsbluff.
