Jeff Mays said something like with the voters passing the referendum to build the schools the voters also showed they put their faith and trust in the school board to make decisions and do what is right.. Uh lets not get carried away Mr. Mays. I didn't see that on the ballot and I think the public still has concerns!

Sounds like something a bitter woman would do because her man left her for someone actually having a job and prospects and not being negligent to her children. When the alleged near car collision fails, they just end up claiming rape or domestic abuse, and because of VAWA and the fact that they are women, 'THEY ARE ALWAYS RIGHT' ! Go girl power. Thank you feminist dems! You make the rocking…

Tornado touches down near Hannibal

The National Weather Service confirmed that a tornado touched down near Hannibal, Mo. Monday night, but straight-line winds caused most of Monday night's damage to the town.

Hannibal Board of Public Works's Director of Communications Cindy Livesay says 45 to 50% of Hannibal residents are still without power. 

Crews are working around the clock and Livesay said Hannibal has called in help from other communities.

She added there are still several power lines down as well.

"The best thing for people to do is to completely stay away from those.  We do have crews responding to those as they come in," said Livesay. "The problem is that the more we get out and survey the area, the more of that damage we're finding."

Livesay said there's no time estimate as to when power may be restored completely at this time. 

Several Hannibal parks were damaged last night as well. 

Assistant Supervisor for the Hannibal Parks and Recreation Department Mary Lynn Richards said they're going to lose a lot of trees.

"It looks like a war zone.  All these beautiful trees down, and the roads are impassable," said Richards. "But I went through and every shelter, bathroom and playground is ok."

As of Monday:

The Hannibal Police Department is without power. HPD requested that people stay in their homes and restrict driving. Center. Roads are nearly impassible in downtown Hannibal. Numerous traffic crashes were reported.

The storm snapped tree limbs filling roadways with debris. There are reports of numerous downed power lines and several gas leaks within the city.

Emergency officials are calling on emergency crews from neighboring counties for assistance.

NWS said the tornado was located “near Hannibal” at 7:45 p.m. and headed northeast at 45 mph. It also produced ping pong ball-sized hail.

Hannibal Public Schools canceled classes for Tuesday because of the number of trees down throughout the community.
