Severe thunderstorm warnings were issued Montgomery, Fayette, and counties to the southwest, as heavy thunderstorms moved out of the St. Louis area during the 6 o’clock hour.
The line came thru Christian County during the 7 o’clock hour Monday night. Christian County Emergency Services Agency director Mike Crews spoke with Regional Radio News during our live severe weather coverage Monday night, and said the leading edge of the storms caused some high wind gusts and pea size hail but apparently no damage or injuries.
Thunderstorm chances continue thru Tuesday night.
