After a summer-like day on Saturday, May 5 where temperatures were in the upper 80s, Clin-
ton County residents experienced rain, flash flooding and hail on Sunday.
According the the National Weather Service, a warm/humid air moved mass across the Cen-
tral Plains on Sunday to set up several rounds of thunderstorm activity for Kansas and Missouri.
Flooding occurred in several local areas including Plattsburg's Perkins Park which was
closed Monday until the water receded. Reports of hail in Clinton County varied from pea size to
baseball sized hail in Stewartsville. Most of the county received 1.5 to 2" of rain. The Right Care. Right Here.
Remember to make sure your weather radios have batteries and are set for the right area. If
