Utility crews from Boone Electric and Ameren Missouri worked around-the-clock to restore power to more than 2,500 residents impacted by severe storms Thursday night in mid-Missouri’s Hallsville, Centralia and Harrisburg.

National Weather Service (NWS) St. Louis meteorologist Jayson  Gosselin tells 939 the Eagle that a preliminary investigation shows mid-Missouri’s Hallsville and Centralia were impacted by 80 mile per hour straight line winds on Thursday evening.

Boone Electric Cooperative says there were about 30 outages overall at one point, with about 2,500 members impacted at one point Thursday night into Friday. State Rep. Cheri Toalson Reisch (R-Hallsville) notes tornado sirens did not sound Thursday evening in Hallsville. The Boone County Office of Emergency Management (BCOEM) says a programming issue prevented certain sirens in northern Boone County from being activated, adding that the issue has been corrected.
