Windy conditions this morning caused a tree limb to fall and block Birch Street between 9th and 10th Streets this morning.  Public Works Director Mike Hutto said the limb collapsed onto the road around 10:00 AM this morning blocking both directions of Birch Street.

“I’m sure last night’s storm had something to do with this,”  Hutto said. Heavy rain and small hail rolled through the Eudora area last night shortly after 10:00 PM and continued into the overnight hours.

Hutto said the Public Works Department was clearing the limb from the roadway and expected it be back open quickly.  Hutto also said he had no other reports of damage from the storm when we talked to him late Friday morning.
