Winds likely gusted over 70 mph for a while, and one power pole was knocked down on County Road 7 south of County Road SS.

The wind and rain then powered into the Lamar area.  The yellow shaded area is the National Weather Service severe thunderstorm warning in effect at that time.

A 200-foot tower (low power AM antenna) at KLMR on the north side of town was destroyed.
