Severe Weather - Early Morning 5/2/08

Severe weather rolled through the area during the early morning hours of May 2nd, 2008. Much of the area had thunderstorm wind gusts around 60-70 MPH. The storms moved into Missouri after they dropped tornadoes in Arkansas. Six people were killed there, including a 15 year old girl when a tree fell on her home.

After moving into Missouri, power was knocked out in Ozark (Christian County), causing schools to be closed for the day. In Ava (Douglas County) straight line winds and an EF-0 tornado damaged several homes and barns as well as some buildings on the town square.

Something new we will start presenting here is audio from the Springfield area SkyWarn net. Thank you to David Williams KE7ABH for recording these, and all of the work he does for the SkyWarn group.
