Coming up in about a week and half, three years ago Sedalia experienced a spring storm that caused damage throughout the city. The combination of high winds and heavy rain along with lightning across the area was a combination that took a toll on trees and roadways.

At some point throughout the course of the forecasted four plus inches of rain that was expected in Sedalia, you knew localized flooding was going to be in the headlines. Flooded creeks and rivers along with downed trees were prevalent in the area. Some low-water bridges also had flooding, as was to be expected.

The Green Ridge University of Missouri Extension weather reporting station measured approximately 2.75 inches of rain, and overall, a little over four inches of rain was reported.

Do you remember any of these areas from the pictures from that storm?

And some houses didn't fare very well from the wind and lightning.
