Severe storms move through Dec. 4

A strong cold front moved through Mid-Missouri sending a line of storms, some which became severe, producing damaging wind and a possible tornado. The storms moved in at 3 PM near HWY 65 and tracked to the east and out by 8 PM. They produced hail under an inch in diameter as they first moved in but strengthened as they pushed east, with pockets of strong winds.

Close to 5 PM, a rotating storm moved into southern Randolph county and brought strong, damaging winds and heavy rain from Higbee to Renick, injuring two people and producing damage to buildings. There were unconfirmed reports of a tornado but this hasn’t been confirmed by the National Weather Service yet. They are collecting information and will assess the damage Tuesday to see if they consider it a tornado or straight-line winds. We will update you on the final report.
