Strong storm brings down trees on cars, roads in Boone County

Powerful winds and torrential rain battered mid-Missouri Saturday afternoon, bringing trees and power lines down across the area.

The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for Boone County just after 5 p.m.

In Columbia, several power lines snapped in the central city during the storm. Columbia Water & Light crews disconnected a live line at Donnelly Avenue and West Boulevard. The department brought power back to the area shortly after.

On West Ash Street, a woman’s tree crashed down onto her car.

South of Columbia, the Boone County Fire Protection District says more than 150 trees and tree limbs snapped in storm, blocking Old Plank Road and West Dothage Road near the Providence Access of the Missouri River. Captain Martina Pounds, a spokeswoman for the district, said the department notified Boone County Public Works, and crews will work to make the roads passable.
