Severe Weather Batters WGEL Listening Area

WGEL listener Dave Carr shared this photo, taken north of Governor Bond Lake, just as the storms were moving in Monday night.

Severe weather battered the WGEL listening area Monday night.

Thunderstorms rolled through Montgomery, Bond, Clinton, and Fayette Counties between 8:00 and 9:30 p.m., leaving many reports of damage in their wake.

We fielded countless reports of trees and limbs down throughout the affected areas, including several that blocked roadways and some that damaged vehicles. Hail was reported in downtown Greenville. City crews and firefighters were kept busy through the night with numerous power lines downed in various locations.

Ameren reported hundreds of customers in Bond, Clinton, and Montgomery Counties without power during the storms.
