Saturday storms damage trees throughout northeast Johnson County

This tree at 79th Street and Delmar in Prairie Village was among the victims of high winds Saturday.

Our trees just can’t catch a break.

The intense, fast-moving line of storms that struck northeast Johnson County caused series wind damage, felling more limbs and even entire trees in an area that saw heavy tree damage during the late winter snowstorms.

Residents and utility crews on Sunday were in clean up mode, with KCP&L working to restore power to homes were trees had fallen on lines.

The storms also tested already stretched drainage systems, with as much as three inches of rain accumulating, prompting flood watches throughout the night.
