Senath Residents Recover After Severe Weather Comes Through

SENATH, MO -- The lights are out for residents in Senath, Missouri after a line of thunderstorms moved through Region 8 on Thursday night.

The damage left behind is minor.  Several trees were uprooted, and other trees were snapped by the wind.

Donna Temple and her son Skyler told Region 8 News they like to go storm chasing and tonight was no exception. 

"It didn't look bad and it started raining just a little and in two minutes it picked up.  We pulled over here to try to get some shelter," said Donna Temple.

They say the storm shifted and the wind, rain, and hail started coming right at them.

Several residents were out helping pull up partially uprooted trees and making sure everyone was ok.

"I've seen at least 15 trees or so, so far," said Chad Pepper.

The power is supplied by Ameren UE, a company based out of St. Louis.  As of Thursday night, the power was still out in the Dunklin County town.
