Storms damage buildings in Randolph County
The Randolph County sheriff said high winds damaged some two dozen buildings and put one person in the hospital.
A line of strong thunderstorms moved through central Missouri during the early Monday evening. Sheriff Mark Nichols said much of the damage happened around Higbee and Renick. KRCG 13 saw a mobile home destroyed on County Road 2550, and a large brick building was destroyed in downtown Higbee.
Nichols said 2 or 3 people were hurt, including one woman who was taken to an area hospital. Preliminary data showed a maximum wind speed in the 40-45 mph range.
The National Weather Service said it would send a crew to the area to evaluate the damage on Tuesday morning.
