A strong tornado that caused heavy damage to the famous Branson Strip entertainment district in Missouri appears to have affected only the downtown area of the famous resort community.
According to a press release, the Branson KOA Campground only reported a few downed tree limbs. No other damage was reported to the campground.
Branson KOA owner Ralph Newell said that the power was out and there was no telephone service at the campground Wednesday (Feb. 29) morning, but he expected both to be restored to the park later in the day. He added that no recreational vehicles were damaged and there were no injuries at the campground.
“We are still open for business,” Newell said. “The severe damage seems to be very localized to the Walmart Store and a few of the theaters along the Branson Strip.”
