Due to severe thunderstorms in the area, several trees and powerlines are down currently across roads throughtout all ends of Ste. Genevieve County — from Highway DD to C to B to Z and even inside Ste. Genevieve city limits. First responders and law enforcement have responded to multiple vehicle accidents as well and are clearing those blocked roads all at the same time, only to have to respond to even more blocked roads once done with previous ordeals.
“If you see a downed powerline, do not attempt to move it and call 9-1-1,” said an unnamed first responder at one of the scenes.
