Prayers for Dalecoy!
« on: July 01, 2015, 10:14:25 PM »
Whether religious or not, there was a lowering funnel cloud confirmed this evening in Lee's Summit, Missouri, which is where long-time forum member and friend Dalecoy is located. Looks like the damage wasn't too severe thankfully, but it certainly could have caused some damage! Prayers friend!  8-) 8-)

Here is an excerpt from an article about it.  Glad there were no injuries.

An apparent tornado has caused damage in Unity Village and Lee's Summit in eastern Jackson County. Roofs were torn off, cars and a semi were overturned and firework tents toppled.

No injuries were reported, according to Mike Curry, director of emergency preparedness for Jackson County.

The funnel cloud lasted a short time in Lee's Summit, Curry said. He said the damage reports seem to be from high winds and debris. This includes heating and cooling equipment on roofs being moved and gas leaks.

Many people took cover after seeing the sinister funnel cloud and hearing the sirens. Some were trapped inside businesses as high winds tossed their vehicles like toy cars.
