In a Tuesday evening thunderstorm, high winds and heavy rains caused issues for the residents living in the Packsaddle area.
The winds toppled trees onto power lines causing outages along Elam Trail. Additionally, the heavy rains caused flooding in that same area. Northwest Scott Volunteer Fire Department Chief Donnie Adkins warned that “folks in that area maybe out of power for a bit.”
