Washington, Palmer, Linn and Hanover seemed to take the brunt of the storm Saturday night as a severe thunderstorm and possibly a tornado did quite a bit of damage, especially in Washington. Sheriff Justin Cordry was driving down Main Street in Washington when the storm hit and he believes damage in Washington was caused by a tornado, maybe not on the ground but dipping up and down. Damage reports in Washington included structure damage to the sale barn and Pure Energy, a tree went through a storage building, window, and door at the Coop, plus lots of tree limbs and power lines down.
Power was fully restored in the City of Washington Sunday afternoon around 4:15 pm. The Union Pacific also reported a train derailment at Spence and Wagon Train Roads in Northeast Washington County. The empty coal cars were thought to have been blown off the tracks by straight line winds, but further investigation will be needed to determine that. Hanover, Palmer, and Linn also reported structural damage and power lines down.
