Summer Storm Causes Damage in Calloway County
Severe weather in Calloway County over the weekend caused some minor damage and power outages.
County Director of Emergency Management Bill Call says crews worked through the night to restore power to 3,000 homes. 200 of those were still without electricity Sunday afternoon.
High winds caused some downed tree limbs and minor damage to buildings.
Call says the community came together after the severe weather had passed.
“After the storm, the volunteer fire department was out helping the road department clean up the roads and people cleaned up the streets and in front of their own houses and so forth," Call said.
"We got the mess cleaned up very quickly as a result of all those volunteers."
One family had been forced to leave their home after a portion of their roof was blown off.
However, Call says no county residents were injured and no tornadoes were spotted.
