Strong thunderstorms rolled through the area Thursday evening, bringing strong winds, lightning and heavy bursts of rain.
A gust of 75 miles per hour was reported at the Marion Municipal Airport last night and there were power lines down and some wind damage reported near Fowlerton, although no injuries were reported.
Local streams and rivers are on the rise due to the rain and melting snow, though authorities report no problems at this time. High water is reported along some roads, but police say no roads are closed at this time.
