(CHILLICOTHE, Mo.) A fast-moving storm with high winds caused damage in parts of Chillicothe on Memorial Day.


The storm packed winds up to 80-miles per hour and downed trees and ripped shingles off roofs of homes and businesses.

Power was also knocked out.

Livingston County Emergency Manager Darrell Wright said it could have been much worse.

"We actually haven't had a storm for a few years now," Wright said. "This is the most significant (damage) we had in three to four years."

A cloudy start to your Thursday across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. Temperatures slowly warmed up into the upper 40 and lower 50's by the afternoon. We will be watching a storm system for the weekend which could bring us a mix of rain and snow.
