(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 sunny and very warm Wednesday across northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas. Sunny skies and above normal temperatures were found across the area Wednesday afternoon but a strong cold front has made its way into the area bringing cooler air with it.
