Severe thunderstorms pushed their ways through the Lake Area early Thursday afternoon leaving spotty damage reports in their wakes. Heavy rain, gusty winds and cloud-to-ground lightning were the main threats from the storms. Perhaps hit the hardest was the area in, and around, the City of Camdenton with trees and limbs knocked down. Wind gusts as strong as 43 mph tossed about a trampoline and caused other problems, including some downed power lines. Ann Mott is the assistant director at Camden County Emergency Management.
