LEBANON, Mo. (KY3) - Crews worked through the morning to restore power to thousands of customers across the Ozarks following strong storms.

The most significant damage happened Wednesday night in the Lebanon area. The storm damaged structures, power lines, and tree limbs. Much of the damage stretches along a path of State Highway 64. The National Weather Service issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for the storm. It classified the storm as high wind damage.

Janessa Newell is a homeowner in Laclede County. She said she could not see outside because of all the rain.

“It was almost like a white-out from snow, but it was just hail and rain,” said Newell.

She spent the day repairing her garden from the storm.

“I’m attempting to put my greenhouse panels back in. Luckily, none of them broke,” said Newell.

Crews restored most of the power by mid-morning. Wednesday and Thursday night storms knocked power out to thousands, including in Greene County.
