Destruction in its wake

Thursday, January 10, 2008

A tornado that touched down at Midway, north of Purdy, on Monday evening left a path of twisted metal, uprooted trees and and downed fence lines in its wake. Throughout Monday night and Tuesday morning, seven or eight severe weather cells passed through Barry County with each one producing a tornadic storm. There were a total of nine tornado warnings issued for Barry County in a seven-hour stretch.
