Evening storms wreak havoc


As a storm pushed through the area Monday evening from about 6:45-7:45 p.m., emergency services dealt with several calls due to high winds that accompanied the cloudbursts.

At 6:45 p.m., the Columbia Fire Department responded when a tree fell on a truck in the parking lot of the former Bridges, on the bottoms.

Ten minutes later, the Waterloo Fire Department was called out to lines down on Walnut Street.

At about 7:45 p.m., Columbia fire again was called into action, this time to assist Dupo with a tree that had fallen on wires, catching fire. Columbia’s assistance was promptly disregarded and the apparatus returned to its quarters.

It is not believed there were any injuries involved with these incidents.
