Preliminary storm damage report – Atlantic

News, Weather

May 30th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

The National Weather Service says thunderstorms that passed through Atlantic Thursday night caused some tree damage and produced some pea-sized hail. The Cass County Emergency Management Agency told the Weather Service winds estimated at 45-miles per hour caused a 5-inch diameter tree limb to break in Atlantic at around 9:30-p.m.   Pea-sized hail was observed here at the KJAN Studios as well, at around that same time.

There were no other, immediate reports of damage in Atlantic. In Montgomery County, Emergency Management officials said G Ave between Hwy 34 and Old Hwy 34 was closed for a few hours late Thursday evening, due to a power line falling over the roadway west of Red Oak. The road was re-opened at around 11:15-p.m.
