Saturday storm hits Scott County

Severe thunderstorms blew through Scott County between 9 and 10:30 p.m. Saturday, June 26, and severe weather sirens were activated three times in New Prague during that time. The storm caused flooding and damage in many parts of the county, but the New Prague area seems to have escaped most of the damage.

A decorative street light in front of the New Prague Library at Main Street E. and Lincoln Ave. S had been knocked over by the high winds. The power was still on and the lights were still illuminated as a New Prague police officer waited for New Prague Utilities to arrive.
