Severe Storms Push Across Southern Ozarks

Large hail and wind gusts of more than 60 hour accompanied intense thunderstorms that moved across southwest Missouri late Wednesday night into early Thursday morning.

Parts of Greene, Christian and Webster County were under severe thunderstorm warnings, along with most counties south of I-44 during the course of the night.

We had reports of limbs down and power outages in Highlandville, egg size hail in Mountain Grove, and quarter size hail in Kimberling City Eagle Rock and Shell Knob, and limbs down near Niangua.

There were no tornado warnings issued.
