High winds and hail have hit Missouri with the arrival of a cold front right behind the hottest day of the year so far in many parts of Missouri. Winds of more than 40 miles an hour have caused scattered property damage and some downed trees and power lines.
The storm brought ping-pong sized hail to Unionville in North Missouri’s Putnam County and in Liberty, in the Kansas City area. The winds were severe enough to cause semi-trucks to overturn in Clay county and in central Missouri’s Randolph County.
One funnel cloud was reported North of Waverly, in Carroll County. No injuries have been reported.
