Strong storms blow through Mo.

Sunday, April 25, 2010

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Strong winds and hail pummeled parts of southwest and Southeast Missouri, blowing down trees and causing damage near Table Rock Lake.

Taney County deputies reported "significant" damage to boats and docks at State Park Marina near Table Rock Dam. Several trees also were blown down Saturday after what the National Weather Service called a possible tornado hit the area.

In Southeast Missouri, winds blew the roof off the police department in East Prairie, and a young boy there was briefly trapped when a mobile home he was in blew over.

And flooding was reported in and around Poplar Bluff, where up to a foot of water was reported in some roads.
