Quite the light show was being reported during the overnight hours as a round of strong-to-severe storms pushed its way across parts of the lake area.

Strong winds up to around 60 miles-per-hour, pea sized hail and more than 270 without power for a time were also reported in the Laurie and Gravois areas on the west side.

The potential for another round of strong storms in the lake area is possible again today into tomorrow.
