“Widespread” damage from suspected tornado in Bollinger County

MARBLE HILL, Mo. — Bollinger County, south of the St. Louis region, was hit hard by tornado-warned storms Wednesday morning.

Clarke Parrott, a spokeswoman for Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop E, spoke to FOX 2 meteorologists and reporters this morning.

He says there are no reports of injuries or deaths as of 6:45 a.m. Wednesday, although damage is widespread. Some rescue and search efforts are also underway.

FOX 2’s Rogue Runner probed the roads of Missouri Route 34 near Marble Hill on Wednesday. Videos show many downed trees and broken branches, some along the highway. The Glenallen community near Marble Hill is believed to be one of the hardest hit.

Parrott says there was also damage to power lines, tractor trailers and churches in the area. There are similar impacts west and east of Route 34, and the damage is considered “fairly widespread,” according to Parrott.

FOX 2 has reached out to emergency officials and is awaiting confirmation as to whether this system was in fact a tornado, although the southern Missouri storm system has received tornado warnings.

Additional details are currently limited. FOX 2 will be updated as more information becomes available.
