GRAIN BIN DAMAGE AT BAUER RESIDENCE

TUESDAY AFTERNOON STORM DAMAGE

 

Yesterday,for the third straight day all of the WGEL listening area and the entire Metro East and St. Louis area found themselves under weather watches and warnings.  In the 2PM hour Tuesday, the National Weather Service began issuing Tornado Warnings and Severe Thunderstorm warnings. Bond County was placed under two different tornado warnings that afternoon.

 

The first storm that cut though Bond County Tuesday afternoon turned out to be the most damaging, sending tree limbs to the ground and taking out a 7500 bushel grain storage bin at the George and Wilma Bauer home, at 555 16th Road.  We talked to Wilma who said it had been raining and they were watching the clouds when they heard a loud noise.  They went to the basement for a while and when they came up they saw the grain bin had been blown over.  Tree limbs littered the yard and garden plants, including corn and squash, were damaged or blown from the ground.

 

Just southwest of the Bauer home, a roof on a large storage building at Mark Schewe’s farm was briefly lifted off the structure and laid back down. Mark told us he wasn’t at home at the time.  In addition to the damaged roof, several doors were blown away on his outbuildings. 

 

Rain totals recorded for the City of Greenville for the last 24 hours ending at 6am this morning were .74 inches at the sewer plant .55 inches at 6th Street, and .65 inches at Idler Lane.
