Weather Damages Homes in 2 Counties, but No Injuries
Two Missouri counties have reported weather-related property damage amid severe thunderstorms in several parts of the state.
Officials from Jackson and Johnson counties said Tuesday that there had been no reported injuries.
Deputy Raashid Brown of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office says a mid-day storm around Lake Lotawana damaged several homes and caused power outages.
Troy Armstrong, director of emergency management for Johnson County, says at least one outbuilding was destroyed, power lines were downed, homes were damaged by fallen trees and some road flooding was reported.
Both counties were in the early stages of damage assessment.
