Winds gusting to near 50 m.p.h. this Tuesday morning have caused some scattered power outages for several thousand Metro Kansas City residents.
The KCP&L report the largest number of their customers without power are in western and southwestern Gladstone- K.C. North- as shown by the accompanying image.
The winds have brought down tree limbs and- in one case- an entire tree.
That was around 6 a.m. in the 6600 block of Overbrook in Mission Hills- where a tree came down in a backyard- causing a small brush fire.
There's a decent chance for severe thunderstorms later today in Metro Kansas City and over much of the MetroRegion.
More on this a little later this morning....
