High winds hit the KRMS listening area overnight. Some winds were in excess of 40 miles per hour. However, Meteorologist Mike Griffin with the National Weather Service in Springfield says it could’ve been a lot worse, but thankfully the threat was downgraded for the area.
As far as wind damage in the Tri-County area, the Camden County Sheriff’s Office reports some downed trees on a few county roads but nothing major. However, the Sheriff’s office is encouraging residents to not burn anything as there have been several brush fires the past couple of days. In Morgan County, the Sheriff’s Department reports tree limbs in some of the roadways, but that everything has been cleaned up. No information is available yet for Miller County. Outside the KRMS listening area, 72 mph winds and a barn roof was blown off onto a road on Hwy. 11 North of Brunswick while the entire town of Sumner lost power and 12” diameter tree limbs down in Salisbury.
