Heavy rain ends local drought, brings power outages

The Waynesville-St. Robert area finally received rain Wednesday evening after a long drought, but the rain came along with a severe thunderstorm warning, and numerous reports of downed power lines and other lines after the storm passed, along with vehicles crashing on I-44 due to hydroplaning. Initial reports of power outage locations could not immediately be confirmed.
