Storm damage closes road around Reeds Spring

REEDS SPRING, Mo. Overnight storms closed a highway in Stone County for most of the morning Friday. Crews blocked off Missouri Highway 413 between Reeds Spring and Branson West.

They blocked the road near the intersection of highways 265 and 76 right in front of Reed Spring High School.

Crews say high winds knocked down two power poles about one this morning. They worked all morning to make repairs. Crews from Empire Electric replaced the two poles but are still before working to restore power

Even though the road was closed drivers could still get in and out of the high school by going through the next parking lot. The school sent students home as soon as they finished their final exams.

Crews re-opened the road just before 11:30 Friday morning.
