Dangerous Weather System Plows Through NEARK

Monday, October 13, 2014

A strong storm system pushed through the region Monday, Oct. 13, as a low pressure system brought dangerous weather to the heart of the country.

The hardest hit area in Clay County was the town of McDougal, where one home was destroyed and several others were damaged along with out buildings and vehicles. The Hopewell Community Center was also a victim of the storm, which also adversely impacted the ongoing harvest.

Clay County OEM reports heavy damage to the Billy Gilbee residence in McDougal, but luckily there were no injuries reported locally.
