A cool down for the Ozarks came at a price: severe thunderstorms pushing along a cold front
It took about four hours for severe thunderstorms to blow through the Ozarks Saturday night. 60 mph winds were a common theme.
The damage appears to have been most extensive across Jasper County, where power lines blew down across Highway 71 and caused traffic problems. The roof of a bank in Jasper was damaged and the doors to the fire station were blown in.
There were several reports of downed trees in Christian County, including one that blocked EE highway near the Highlandville Cemetery.
In rural Taney County north of Walnut Shade, a homeowner had some minor injuries and refused medical treatment. A barn was blown down near Bradleyville.
In Springfield, a flat bed trailer was blown around at the Ozark Empire Fair.
Power outages were reported in Billings, Ash Grove, Fair Grove, Jasper, Bennett Springs and Gainesville.
