From the desk of Harrisonville Mayor Brian Hasek

Hopefully everyone is getting power back that has lost it today. I am at the lake and have had little to no service, but have been informed of the severe storms that hit Harrisonville. Please know electric crews are working hard to restore all power. 

With a hit this larger (50% or more) without power it does take time. Hope everyone is safe and has a good rest of your holiday weekend.
