More storms made their way thru Fayette County on Wednesday afternoon and evening. The storms prompted multiple severe thunderstorm warnings—bringing wind gusts of 60 to 70 miles per hour, large hail and lightning into the area. As of this time, there have been no major damage reports—although there have been some reports of flash flooding in some areas of the county. The storm stayed on the southern half of the county—basically from I-70 south.
Meanwhile, we may have one more round of severe weather to deal with before we could get a break. The National Weather Service in St. Louis says there is a chance of severe thunderstorms on Friday afternoon and evening along and north of Interstate 70. The NWS says large hail and damaging winds are the primary threats.
