Storms Overnight Knock Out Power Again

Two waves of severe weather this morning in the Kansas City area downed trees and knocked out power again. Almost 46,000 customers had lost power according to KCPL, many of whom lost power the last time strong storms moved through the area. In the city, and older areas with mature trees and overhead power lines were the strongest hit.

For many today will be spent cutting up downed trees, or maybe buying a generator. The good news is that the weather for Monday and Tuesday looks fabulous. Get out and enjoy it!

Northwest Missouri actually got the brunt of this storm, with a brief tornado touchdown near Maryville on Sunday evening. There were also reports of cars blown off the road, and large trees down onto power lines.

Weekend Storms Wreak Havoc Over Kansas City Area

Bookmark and Share

Strong storms rolled through the Kansas City Area on Saturday evening accompanied by strong winds and large hail. Some of the worst damage was in the Northland where winds close to 90 mph tore through the area. As of this morning, KCP&L reports roughly 1400 are still without power North of the River. This is down from the nearly 20,000 that were powerless immediately following the storm. The utility will be handing out dry ice today to those without power, bring a cooler with you to the K-Mart parking lot on Vivian Rd.

Also hard hit was Smithville Lake. The storm did $500,000 worth of damage to G Dock at Paradise Pointe Marina. That dock was a total lose, and some damage was done to surrounding docks. Large trees were downed around the Lake, and power is not restored in that are either.

Large hail around town did significant damage including the Independence Center where a skylight was broken. The mall had to be partially evacuated. Cars and roofs were heavily damaged by hail up to SOFTBALL sized. Amazingly there were no injuries reported in any of the incidents across the Kansas City Region. More good news, no more storms expected until at least Wednesday, giving folks a chance to clean up.
