Storms are continuing to sweep south and east through Missouri and bring with them prolonged, potentially damaging winds. Winds of 50 to 70 miles an hour have been reported as the storms have advanced from northern Missouri.
Power has been reported out at times in several communities including Weston, Marshall, Sedalia and Columbia. The Pettis County Sheriff’s Department reported two power poles on fire since 11 p.m.
Reports of wind damage have included trees, limbs and power lines down and shingles off of roofs.
Some flooding has also been reported, particularly in areas where storm drains were overwhelmed by high rainfall totals in brief periods. An emergency manager in Kansas City says crews have been sent to a reported water rescue situation at the corner of 9th and Winner Road.
The Weather Service is warning of continuing flood possibilities and some warnings have been issued. Officials urge motorists not to drive into flooded roadways.
