Crews clean up after stormy weather in Cooper County

Emergency crews were called to clear the scene of a fallen branch from a tree that fell on a power line in Boonville Wednesday afternoon.

The Boonville Fire Department told ABC 17 News high winds played a factor.

Sarah Toombs, a resident, says her car was just beneath where the branch fell, “My car was parked right underneath it and the power lines kept it from falling on top of my car.”

No power outages were reported. Ameren crews fixed the power line and said the city will come to clean the tree up Thursday morning.

ORIGINAL STORY,4:41 PM: Stormy weather has reportedly caused some minor damage in parts of Cooper County. ABC 17 News has gotten word of damaged power lines in the Boonville and Prairie Home area over the past couple of hours.

We know one tree is down near the intersection of Spring and 8th Streets in Boonville; there is no property damage, but the road is partially blocked for now.

At this point there are no reports of any power outages or injuries.
