Weather Hits Hard South of I-20

Severe weather spread damage across communities south of Interstate-20 Tuesday evening. A great deal of the damage was concentrated in Simpson County near the Harrisville Community.

There were large trees and powerlines knocked down by high winds. The Larson family home on Highway 469 suffered extensive damage. A large portion of their roof was blown off, and several windows broken as the storm blew through. Inside the home there were many items damaged as water seeped in. Luckily no one was inside at the time.

Many residents lost power during the storm, but most had it quickly restored. There were no reports of any injuries as a result of the bad weather.
