Through brief and quick moving, Wednesday morning's thunderstorms still caused headaches across Eastern Jackson County and the metro area.
The storms hit shortly after 9 a.m., and had largely passed through an hour later, but they left roads and lawns littered with downed tree limbs and other debris, caused power outages and tossed about trampolines and other yard items.
The Truman Library & Museum closed for the day after power went out, and Jackson County offices at the Historic Truman Courthouse briefly suspended services due to the power outage.
As of noon, more than 3,300 Independence Power & Light customers and more than 27,000 Kansas City Power & Light customers, including some in Blue Springs, Grain Valley, Sugar Creek and rural Jackson County, remained without power. IPL reported 183 separate outages still at noon.
