The Scott County Rural Fire Department reports a firefighter spotted a funnel cloud on north Highway 450 near 61 west. It did not touch down and it was heading east.
At 4 a.m. officials reported that crews were able to remove most of the trees and limbs from roadways. The sheriff’s office says to watch for debris.
There is also water over the road at CR 210 near Chaffee and the intersection of CR 204 and 205. The road is impassable.
According to the Bollinger County Sheriff’s Office, there was hail accumulation in the southern part of the county. Highway P is covered in water. Weather watchers are there with lights so no one gets stuck.
The sheriff’s office said a tree is down covering both lanes of UU Highway off of B Highway. MoDOT is on the way to remove the tree.
Damage has been reported within the city limits of Naylor. Ping pong size hail was reported in Oxly.

Burnout Bridge on OCR 501 in Perry County, Mo. is impassable due to high water. Avoid the area. Do not attempt to drive through flooded areas.
Fruitland Area Fire and Protection officials said a drive through of the southern part of the District tonight didn’t show any significant damage. The low water bridge on County Road 442 was impassable and the water was very swift and very deep as of midnight. Officials said with the amount of water at that low water bridge, it is a safe assumption that Byrd Creek and Horrell Creek further north was also impassible. A crew will be out checking these areas again in the morning, especially if more rain falls throughout the night.
