A barn on the property of Jim Crain at the 22000 block of Emerson Road was destroyed in Wednesday’s early morning storm.


Scattered property damage was reported in the Laclede County area after a night of severe weather.
Jim Crain, who raises cattle at the 22000 block of Emerson Road, told the Daily Record he had one barn nearly destroyed and another seriously damaged. He had at least one seriously injured cow that will likely have to be euthanized. The storm also damaged hay.
Crain said his mother, who lives nearby, saw damage to her home, including broken windows, shingles blown off the roof and a door almost blown off its hinges.
Randy Rowe, director of the Laclede County Office of Emergency Management, said his office received two reports of damages. A straight line wind or microburst was reported at 1:20 a.m. Wednesday morning in the 16000 block of Foxtail Drive. More than a dozen trees were knocked over at that location. Also at that location, a window was broken, a hot tub moved and a camper trailer was turned upside down.
