High winds topple trees
By Chuck Kajer
Residents in New Prague and southern Scott County got an early wakeup call Friday, June 24, when a severe thunderstorm made its way through the area.
Warning sirens sounded in New Prague about 6:15 am., and already by that time, high winds, with gusts estimated at 70 miles per hour, were jostling trees throughout the city.
