JASPER COUNTY, Mo. — A local tree is feeling the effects of Wednesday’s storms.

A viewer tipped us off to the nearly barren tree just off Airport Drive. Storms from early Wednesday morning brought widespread rain and lightning across the Four States as a cold front moved through from the west.

While the storms are expected to clear up and stay away until Saturday night, a few scattered showers aren’t totally off the table.
