Storms Threaten Southeast Missouri

APRIL 13, 2005 - Posted at 7:55 a.m. CDT

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - A slow-moving storm produces funnel clouds, large hail and flash flooding over portions of Cape Girardeau County.

Emergency management official Charlie Griffith says five funnel clouds were spotted during a severe thunderstorm-and-tornado watch yesterday afternoon.  But none touched the ground.

He says three to four inches of pea-sized hail gave the appearance of a snow storm.

Jackson, eight miles west of Cape Girardeau, got most of the rain.  Most of the hail fell in Fruitland, 15 miles north of Cape Girardeau.

No fatalities, injuries or damage were reported.

The storm arrived just as local schools were preparing to let children out around 2 p.m.  They were kept behind until the storm ended after 4:30 p.m.
