A new round of damaging thunderstorms erupted over the central United States Wednesday night into Thursday, right on the heels of a severe weather outbreak across the region earlier this week.
A large tornado tore through the capital city of Jefferson City, Missouri. The National Weather Service in St. Louis issued a Tornado Emergency for the area after a ‘violent tornado’ was confirmed on the ground.
In Jefferson City, the state capital, there is extensive damage along Ellis Boulevard near Highway 54. Power lines are down. Traffic is being diverted as @MSHPTrooperGHQ & local first responders go door-to-door. Consider all power lines live.
