MISSION HILLS, Kan. -- The fast-moving storm that came through the metro area Wednesday afternoon knocked down trees and knocked out power to a several thousand customers of KCP&L, Westar, BPU and Independence Power and Light.

Many who watched FOX 4 meteorologist Mike Thompson's Facebook Live weather report noted a heavy downpour and strong winds. That included people in Raytown, Independence, Olathe, Mission and Wyandotte County as well as others.

The picture is from Mission Hills, where a tree limb toppled and destroyed a car.  Trees were also reported down at 23rd and Brighton and Blue Ridge Blvd. and Sterling, where a tree was blocking the road.
