Storm Produces Damage in Some Locations

Area thunderstorms plaguing the area on Tuesday night brought winds exceeding 60 mph and brought down trees and limbs. Forest City saw downed tree branches on houses and in yards.

Nearly one inch of rain fell in a short amount of time. The storms gathered strength along the Missouri River border sparking a Severe Thunderstorm Watch which turned into a warning as the storm entered the broadcast area.

Damage reports are still coming in from not only the Forest City area, but surrounding cities where equally strong storms impacted them.

Some streets in Forest City were temporarily closed while street crews cleaned up tree limbs on roadways or cut them down from power lines.
