Five Confirmed Dead in Bollinger County From Twister

(Glen Allen) Governor Parson joined emergency response personnel and local leaders of Bollinger County Wednesday afternoon to assess the severe weather and tornado damage that took place in the overnight hours early Wednesday morning.

The governor let Bollinger County residents know he’s already talked with President Biden.

The worst part is lives were lost because of the twister that struck at 3:22 early Wednesday morning.

That is Missouri State Highway Patrol Superintendent Eric Olson who took the survey of the damage in the Glen Allen area with the governor.

Others touring the storm damage with the governor included members of the State Emergency Management Agency and Missouri Department of Public Safety.

Governor Parson was also joined by State Senator Holly Rehder.

Media outlets reported about 15-hundred people in the Bollinger County storm-damaged area were without power on Wednesday.

The Bollinger County sheriff says hundreds of search and rescue responders were on-site not long after the tornado hit, from all over the region.
