Wind but no floods in Monmouth
It was a Thusday filled with storms, lighting, and thunder. Monmouth and environs took a hit from powerful straight line winds that may have gone as high as eighty miles per hour. Power was out for most of the city. Ours returned around two AM Friday, but others were not so fortunate. We had several huge limbs crash down on our driveway plus lots of other branches all over the yard. Our backs are sore from pulling and bending for most of the day on Friday. Kirkwood, a neighboring town, had damage to over 200 homes and a lot of the bumper corn crop between here and Roseville has taken an awful beating.
