Last Night's Storms

70 mile per hour winds, ping pong ball sized hail and heavy rains blanketed most of the region Thursday night.

Snapped power poles, downed limbs and trees, and wide-spread roof damage were reported. One eyewitness says power poles between Burlington Junction and Maryville on Highway 136 simply looked like they had been sheered off. Nodaway County Emergency manager Christy Forney says many homes and businesses were damaged due to the severe storms.
